Delhi University Launches School For Transnational Affairs
NEW DELHI: The Delhi University on Wednesday inaugurated the Delhi School of Transnational Affairs, envisaged as a platform to promote “excellence in transnational, comparative and inter-disciplinary research”.
The school has been founded in collaboration with the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA)’s External Publicity and Public Diplomacy Division.
“Delhi School of Transnational Affairs is envisaged as a unique global and virtual platform for cutting-edge debates on various academic issues of transnational significance,” a statement from the university read.
The inaugural was marked by a lecture by G. Parthasarathy, a retired diplomat and former spokesperson of the ministry, who spoke on India’s foreign policy, approbating its disengagement in disputes in West Asia, which he said had served the country well.
