The Centre engages in research work on subjects that are at the intersection of law and public policy. The work may be empirical or non-empirical or a combination of the two. The Centre’s engagement in research projects is concomitant of a number of factors, viz., its objectives, its annual work plan and its prior tasks and commitments. The Centre may either take up research projects independently or it may work on projects assigned/entrusted to it by the concerned Ministries, Departments, Directorates, etc., of the state government or by any other research institution, governmental/non-governmental organisation.
At the end of each research project, the Centre publishes a report. The Centre may also publish interim reports if such is the requirement.
