NIAS conducts several residential courses every year as a part of its foundational mandate. These courses combine elements of research conducted internally by the faculty and larger issues identified in terms of their national and international significance.  Their multidisciplinary character and an integrated approach to knowledge and information distinguish these courses.  The courses aid the participants to acquire knowledge outside their fields of specialization and hence broaden their perspective which will enable them to become effective leaders and decision makers.  The faculty for these courses include faculty from NIAS and researchers, scholars, leaders and policy makers from different parts of the country and occasionally from outside the country as well.
