  • Vinay Rana asked: What does Defence Studies in India encompass and what is the importance of Defence Studies?

    A. Vinod Kumar replies: The academic discipline of defence studies, usually described by the pedagogical nomenclature of defence and strategic studies, branches out from the larger stream of the study of politics, or from a scientific paradigm, even political science. Its genesis is traced to the development of security studies as an academic stream during and after the World Wars.
