Internal Security

67

Insurgency and terrorism are not new to India. Threats are manifold and come from divergent militant outfits. Their demands include greater regional autonomy, independence, the overthrow of the “bourgeoisie”, and dismantling the democratic structure of the Indian polity. The cluster’s research efforts are focused on insurgencies in the Northeast, Maoist (Naxalism) violence, management of India’s borders, coastal security and trends in global terrorism.

Current projects being pursued by the cluster include:

  • “Naxalism: Surrender and Rehabilitation Policies of the Government
  • Review of India-Pakistan Confidence Building Measures
  • Challenges of Border Management
  • Study on Illegal Migration in the Northeast
  • Understanding the Student Islamic Movement of India

The cluster is also involved in various training programmes organized at the Institute for senior Military Officers, Foreign Service probationers, and officers of the Indian Police Service.
