The field of Israel Studies is an important area of geo-politics. It merges studies of race, peoplehood, culture, identity, history, regional conflict in the Middle-East and spatial coexistence. Since August 2012 Jindal Centre for Israel studies in JSIA through the initiatives of Dr. Rohee Dasgupta has been engaging MA students in the study of modern Israel and organizing academic conferences. It has fostered institutional networks and exchange on Israel Studies with the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies, Brandeis University, USA and Tel Aviv University, Israel.

This centre is established to cater to the growing challenges of logistics and goods movement across states and countries, mostly due to changing regulatory and trade environment. It intends to incubate and develop ideas which can be implemented in the global realm while also keeping the local needs into consideration.

The center for research on BOP markets, in the Jindal Global University, seeks to encourage research at the intersection of poverty and markets. Bottom-of-the-pyramid (BOP) markets consist of almost two-thirds of the world's population from poorest socioeconomic groups living on less than $2.5 per day. Other terms used more or less synonymously in the literature are “base of the pyramid” and “subsistence marketplaces.”

India’s development plans are crafted with a balanced emphasis on economic development and environment. The planning process, while targeting an accelerated economic growth, is guided by the principles of sustainable development with a commitment to a cleaner and greener environment. Planning in India seeks to increase wealth and human welfare, while simultaneously conserving the environment. It emphasizes the promotion of people’s participatory institutions and social mobilization, particularly through the empowerment of women, for ensuring environmental sustainability of the development process.

Standard neoclassical finance, which is an offshoot of neoclassical economics, has viewed the global financial system as a simple homogenous system where one size fit all philosophy should hold. For example in the early era of liberalization (1990s onwards) emerging markets, namely, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, and later countries including India, Brazil and alike were mainly considered by global organizations like World Bank / IMF as laboratories where standard models of growth, specifically finance led growth would work flawlessly. Hence the tremendous heterogeneity of these economies, in-terms of both cultural and structural terms were at best ignored.

The Centre for Consumer Research (CCR) aims to examine the social and cultural practices and experiences that help shape consumer identity and individual or collective meaning-making through consumption.
