Professor/Lecturer in the Nelson Mandela Centre for Peace and Conflict Resolution
2005: Early in September the Malaviya Centre’s Program on “Conflict Management and Development” invited me to deliver a series of lectures on issues relating to Conflict, Development and Environment in the One Year Diploma Program.
I have also presented two papers and had three articles published.
On a personal note, I got married on 27 May, 2005 to Mr. Ashwin Parijat Anshu, Assistant Professor in a college in Delhi University. He teaches Modern Indian History.
2004: Since July 1, I am working as Lecturer in the Nelson Mandela Centre for Peace and Conflict Resolution, a part of Jamia Millia Islamia, a university based in New Delhi. I design and teach courses on Conflict Transformation and Peacebuilding to post-graduate students, and I supervise students for fieldwork. Besides this, I assist with organizational and administrative duties from time to time such as organizing and coordinating seminars, workshop, conferences etc.
From April 2003 to April 2004 I worked on the project “Democracy & Human Development: South Asia Context” which was conducted at the Malaviya Centre for Peace Research (MCPR), an interdisciplinary Centre within the Faculty of Social Sciences at the Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi. The Project explored democracy and human development as interconnected processes that could bring sustainable peace and cooperation in South Asia. Besides this, I also performed other organizational and administrative work at the Centre.
