The Road Ahead

  1. CCD plans to carry out the following studies in the near future:
  2. 1. Internal social organisation of tribes in Gujarat

    2 .Migrations among the tribals of Gujarat

    3. The nature of schooling in Gujarat

  3. While continuing its socially relevant research activities, CCD plans to focus on training, seminars and workshops, as it has now the necessary infrastructure – a state-of-the-art conference hall and facilities to accommodate participants.
  4. CCD plans to form a Study Circle for students of sociology, social work, history, anthropology and political science. We wish that the institution becomes a nerve-centre for intellectuals and scholars convening for lectures, colloquia and panel discussions. We also wish to host visiting scholars for short durations of three to six months.
  5. CCD wishes to start courses on understanding the tribals, dalits, OBCs and minority communities. In the coming year a certificate course on research methodology will be started for students and staff members of NGOs. We will seek affiliation with reputed Universities and have a PhD programme at the centre. It has been decided to organise a Foundation Day Lecture each year in the first half of July. The centre will also organise each month, either a panel discussion or a half-day seminar or workshop on current issues of development, religion, caste, or any other socially relevant subjects.
