Research at a glance: Shiv Nadar University

Centre for Public Affairs and Critical Theory shortly known as C- PACT has been originally established under the aegis of The School of Humanities and Social Sciences/SoHSS of Shiv Nadar University to pursue the interdisciplinary researches on different social policies of our society. It is very important to examine carefully this social reality from several diverse perspectives so that outcomes of such varied exercises are easily accessible across the academic specialties of SNU and to the other members of the general public too.

C-PACT’s research works on these social policies will eventually meet the highest academic standards so that they can contribute to some scholarships as well as to the actual policy formulations on these grounds. By converting these research works into solutions, C-PACT is aiming to address the various pressing problems in the society of the day without actually being partisan or somewhat biased towards any other political or even academic persuasions. In the final and ultimate analysis, students, scholars, and fellows of PACT hope to gradually advance citizenship in practice through a variety of research activities.
