About: Indigenous Historical Knowledge

The Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses (IDSA) has been conducting research and organising national and international events initially on Kautilya’s Arthashastra as a part of indigenous historical knowledge. The effort has been motivated by the desire to educate and inform policy makers, scholars and the general public the traditions of strategic thought, defence and security. Reinterpretation of text and traditions relevant to contemporary issues is the vision of this exercise.
