Espousing the philosophy of how contemporary economic theories look at socio-economic problems in a variety of ways, the Centre for New Economics Studies (CNES) through its research and activities aims to focus more on exploring the diversity of the scholarship on economics. At CNES, students and young researchers are not only exposed to the basic foundations of economic reasoning and thought but are exposed to the inter-disciplinary application of the discipline of economics in fields of political science (via political economy), psychology (via behavioral economics), history (via economic history), legal studies (via law and economics) etc.
In most universities and traditional learning centres for mainstream economics learning, there still remains a lacuna between the taught economic theory and the application of such theories in the real policy environment. CNES aims to fill this lacuna by linking economic theory with historical experience(s) and empirical observation under a robust, experimental environment of research. At CNES, teaching or understanding a given economic theory cannot be viewed merely as an exposition of received and established truths or as an intellectual exercise in the skills of logical deduction and inference.

CNES is committed in its research goal to explore wider, more diverse inter-sectional possibilities for research in areas within economics, while experimenting with methods engaged during a process of research. Objective is to identify contemporary social, economic and political issues in context to developing economies and look at these from a micro, more ethnographic perspective. Consequently, the research aim here is not only to publish or disseminate findings through academic journals but also develop alternative ways of knowing within existing frameworks of economic analysis and reasoning to create a genuine interest among students and others for pursuing a cross-fertilized, field based approach to economics (and other social sciences).
More information on the research clusters created within the Centre is given below.
Clusters are focus-groups led by the Director along with a dedicated team of research and senior research assistants (analysts) associated with CNES. The CNES Faculty Advisory Board is engaged in sharing insights on certain documented studies, offering feedback to some clusters.

InfoSphere is a space for fact-based, objective analysis on some of the most pressing contemporary issues of policy concern in South Asia (with a more focus on India).
The purpose of each Fact-Sheet, to be released on a monthly basis, is to provide a data-based narrative on an identified issue, allowing readers to understand, analyse and interpret facts critically from well-authenticated sources.
The Team’s sincere hope is that such form of analysis will allow a cohesive space for policy-diagnosis and discussion on key issues, where facts shown here, can help most shape more informed opinions than give way to personal conjecture or views reflecting deep prejudice or rhetoric.
