The relevance of good quality research work is lost if it is not effectively communicated to the policy making community. The Centre understands the importance of constant communication and intends to bridge this gap by encouraging initiatives like working papers, journal publications and CDS@PES newsletter.

Working Papers

CDS has developed the CDS Working Paper series. The working paper series benefits the faculty, visiting fellows, students and researchers by providing an opportunity for peer review of their research work before publication. The working papers could be papers dealing with issues of public policy at a sectoral, regional or national level. These working papers undergo review but typically constitutes work in progress.
