The Kodikara Award was introduced by RCSS in 1996 in honour of the first Executive Director of RCSS, Prof. Shelton Kodikara. The primary objective of Kodikara Award is to sponsor and generate new knowledge on the main areas of research interest of the RCSS including policy-relevant studies. Thus far many young scholars from across South Asia have contributed new knowledge and perspectives on research areas such as: SAARC: Relevance and Future; South Asian Economic Cooperation; South Asia and China; US Pivot to Asia: Implications for Asia-Pacific; South Asian Political Culture; The Role of Religion and National Policies.
All publications under the Kodikara Fellowship Awards can be accessed through the RCSS Digital Library.
