A modern state confronts multiple and simultaneous challenges across various domains. National security cannot be confined to the use of the state’s coercive power to overcome domestic and external threats. For example, threats to domestic peace and stability may arise from economic and social grievances hence the approach needs to be interdisciplinary. AFPR’s goal is to play an intellectual role in the national security thinking and decision making process in India and to be an idea factory that engenders serious debate about the desirable course of action for challenges that we face as a nation. Our idea is to create a platform of dialogue where various issues relating to international order could be discussed and analyzed freely and candidly.

Traditional indic view towards nature and environment is that we humans and our societies are embedded in nature and human life is an extension of its environment, and hence we have a strong ethical direction aimed at keeping this relational continuity in balance. Striving towards fulfillment of this aim we wish to work on factors causing climate change and create awareness about it amongst the masses. At present, we are working on concrete plans to minimize pollution and use of non-degradable pollutants.
