Developing Interdisciplinarity

Knowledge creation and extension has increasingly become compartmentalized within the social sciences in the highly specialized demands of tightly bounded disciplines and sub-disciplines. This has led to a certain amount of cognitive dissonance in academic approaches within disciplines and set limits on the integrative aspects of socially useful knowledge.

Interdisciplinary approaches are central to ADRI’s pursuit of broadening the scope of research (research at ADRI Institute, at SRC Patna, at SRC Ranchi, at CEPPF and at Dharohar) and its end use by involving as many classes of persons and institutions as possible and to offer research results in innovative, demystified and use worthy content. As an institution, ADRI is committed to building interdisciplinary through its own research and collaborative efforts both in terms of methodological and conceptual basis and applied focus.
