Conducting Research In Developing Countries: thematic case studies & the use of primary data

Azim Premji University has been involved in an inter-institutional collaborative initiative with the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), and King's College London, supported by a grant under the UGC-UKIERI Thematic Partnership on the ‘Changing Nature of the Public and the Private in School Education’. Under the aegis of this grant and collaboration, a six-day Summer School, from June 15th to June 20th, 2015, was hosted by the Azim Premji University in Bengaluru and witnessed the participation of senior research students from reputed academic institutions in India and other countries and education practitioners from a wide range of non-government organisations working on educational issues across India.

Subsequently, a course around the theme of the grant was also facilitated at King’s College London in November 2015 along with faculty from the Azim Premi University, Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), and other institutions. This course material is now available here for online access by interested students, researchers and academics.

    It was in Gudalur, an amazing landscape in the Nilgiri district of Tamil Nadu, that I did my two week field immersion. The exposure to the vast share of unseen indigenous knowledge and culture of the Adivasi community in Gudalur was an exciting experience.
