ADRI Foundation Lecture


The founder-members of ADRI were aware of the fact that its agenda of social science research cannot be convincingly pursued if it was restricted to a rather small academic community. For the agenda to be socially and culturally rooted, it required the participation of a wider section of society, with whom the academia should interact constantly. The dream of a knowledge society could be achieved only through such interactions. It was this understanding of the social science research that had led the ADRI to institute the ADRI Foundation Lecture series in 1993. Till date, these lectures have been delivered by some of the most distinguished scholars in their own fields. They have covered issues that span nearly every dimension of social challenges, both national and international, and have been a rare source of the frontier areas of social thought for the intelligentsia of Patna. Needless to say, as the city happens to be located in a peripheral region of the country, the participation of its intelligentsia in ADRI Foundation Lectures has been enormous. During this important annual event, ADRI also utilises the opportunity to inform the audience of the organisation's progress and challenges.
