In almost all relevant spheres of global interaction, there needs to exist a clear understanding of the motive behind actions and decisions taken by states, policy makers, international organisations and non-state actors.

Cognizant of a large gap between the availability of information and the analysis of actions, a group of academics and graduate students with varying opinions and backgrounds decided to come together and form Initiative for Policy Research & Analysis.

At InPRA, we will initially start with a concentrated focus on developing nations while adopting an outward looking approach towards their foreign policy. Multiple dimensions of the same such as international law and  South-South trade shall also be covered by us.  While disseminating information and opinions in a journalistic manner, we hope to bring an academic and professional analysis of crucial issues to our readers.

Through our OpEds and occasional research papers we intend to give the global young academic a medium through which he/she writes about what they believe is key to an international issue.

However, it may be noted that All opinions given are the views of the authors and InPRA does not support or validate any academic viewpoints/stances/approaches/ideologies.  InPRA and all it’s regular writers strive to maintain a level of academic neutrality and none of the personnel/organisations not directly involved with the drafting and writing of an OpEd/Research Paper shall be liable for the ideas/views/etc of the author and/or editor and/or contributor.

We hope you will critique our arguments, find your position on global concerns and question policy makers and policies more actively. We aim to share local opinions but with a global perspective as you keep interacting and reading our work.

We would also be more than happy to showcase any academic work relevant to our endeavors that you might want to share.

Collectively we hope to showcase the young voices from and about China. They seek to create an accessible map of Chinese culture, society, politics and economy. Together, we decided to present this vast nation on two levels; one that jumps into the dusty old jewelry box capturing the cultural-historic China, and another that explores the contemporary socio-economic China as we watch out for the running giant.
