The IDSA offers membership to individuals and institutions engaged or interested in defence, strategic and security studies. Membership activities are guided and monitored by the Membership Committee of the institute's Executive Council.
VISITING FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
The Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses offers opportunities for scholars based in other countries and institutions to carry out research at IDSA.
IDSA is staffed by a mix of civilian experts and government officials drawn from the civilian bureaucracy, the military, and paramilitary forces. Civilian experts are recruited on multi-year contracts to work on various approved projects.
IDSA is looking for young persons who are seeking internship opportunities for 6-12 months.
OUTSOURCED RESEARCH PROJECT
With a view to encouraging research work by experts and scholars not in the employment of IDSA, a scheme has been approved by the Executive Council to outsource research projects. In accordance with the approved scheme, the Institute invites scholars and experts to submit proposals for undertaking research projects.
