• Amrita Center for Economics and Governance (ACEG) is a multi-disciplinary research center with focus on economic analysis of development failure in fragile and weak states and design and evaluation of innovative public policies and governance regimes. The recent revival of interest among economists in public policy and governance is not random; it has deep theoretical underpinnings. New growth economists have challenged the market driven predictions of neoclassical economists that countries will converge in growth and income distribution.

  • Humanitarian operations and disaster management have been increasingly challenging in recent years because of increased severity and frequency of natural disasters. Four most devastating natural disasters (i.e., the Asian tsunami, the Haitian earthquake, the Japanese earthquake, the Uttarakhand landslide) in the last 100 years occurred during the last decade. Despite the best efforts by several governmental and voluntary institutions, these disasters have caused significant loss of life and material resources.

  • Amrita Center for Responsible Innovations and Sustainable Enterprises (ARISE) is a trans-disciplinary research and impact center which works to solve problems facing the contemporary societies and organizations using the concept of interdependence.
