Journal of Governance, Security & Development is a peer-reviewed journal, which provides a forum for scholarly research and policy-oriented analyses on various dimensions of society, politics, economy, public administration, and security with a focus on South Asia.
We consider governance as the legal, systemic and institutional arrangements for efficient, effective and responsive management of a country’s resources that serve societal interests. Development is understood very broadly in terms of fundamental human needs and ways of social and economic transformation for a more just, equitable and sustainable world. Security covers conventional, human and ecological security aspects.
The journal publishes conceptually-interesting original cross-disciplinary research and policy-driven essays to initiate debates and discussion in each of the three areas. In addition to primary research, the journal also publishes review articles, research notes on ongoing research projects, and book reviews. The journal is published twice a year in April and October.
