Chancellor's Message

I am very happy that The Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda has taken an innovative step by establishing a public policy think tank in the name of the former Prime Minister and statesman Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Apart from his many other contributions as a leader, Shri Vajpayee’s ideas on good governance and foreign policy approach are very relevant for contemporary India. I am confident that with the efforts and wisdom of its directors, advisors and fellows, the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Institute of Policy Research and International Studies (AIPRIS) will engage with the pressing challenges and issues of our time and offer viable choices, insights and advice to the policy makes in the public and private spheres to make our country take further strides on the path of development and security for all. I wish all the best for AIPRIS in its future endeavours.
