The Centre de Sciences Humaines, established in Delhi in 1990, is part of the network of 27 research centres of the Ministry of Foreign affairs, with the joint supervision of the CNRS.

The CSH gathers 30 people around 4 departments: politics and society/risk and territorial dynamics/globalisation and regulation/economics and development. Its mission is to contribute towards a better understanding of the contemporary dynamics of development in India, in the regional and international context.

The CSH has built deep links with Indian institutes, universities and think-thank throughout India. Conferences are regularly held in its library, in Delhi.


The CSH publishes a newsletter jointly with IFP (the French Institute of Pondichery) and Ecole Française d’Extrême-Orient.
