About Us

India’s rising economic and military might must be complemented with a world class international affairs social science base that will generate and test theories and peddle a special Indian variant or brand of global studies. JSIA has become the locus of such an ambitious vision by situating India as a vibrant ground for social science ideas and debates and giving India a leadership role on the world stage. JSIA aims to place India on the global map as a provider of knowledge that is internationally relevant and of the highest standards.

JSIA is a response to numerous calls to action for improving the human resources India possesses in its journey of global ascendancy. It is unbecoming of an aspirant to great power status in the international system to not possess institutions that can produce knowledge which can form the basis for resolving the most pressing global problems of our time. The Jindal School of International Affairs (JSIA) aims to provide students with most up-to-date education and enhance Indian and international capacities of analysing and solving world problems . It intends to strengthen the intellectual basis for planning India’s march to great power status as a responsible member of the international community with its own trademark vision for global governance and stable world order.

Vision

The increasing interconnectedness of international phenomena due to greater density of cross-border contact and exchanges is rendering the practical and academic use of single-disciplined and methodologically incomplete studies obsolete. A School that combines the essences of International Relations, International Law and International Business is a necessity of our globalised times because of the density and thickness of international problems.

Internationally conscious students who have completed a Bachelor’s degree in any discipline, as well as diplomats, international lawyers, media personnel and corporate managers, require broad-based, eclectic and inter-disciplinary education and training that will be assets in the knowledge-oriented global workplace. The Jindal School of International Affairs (JSIA) aims to address this need and enhance Indian and international capacities of analysing and solving world problems. It intends to strengthen the intellectual basis for planning India’s march to great power status as a responsible member of the international community with its own trademark vision for global governance and stable world order.
