The Mahbub Ul Haq Award was introduced by RCSS in 2000 as part of the Non-Traditional Security (NTS) Project in Asia. Named after a distinguished South Asian whose vision made the United Nations Human Development Report a landmark in the discussion on international development, the award encourages young South Asian scholars of two different nationalities to work together on a common project, bringing their diverse interests and background to collaborate on a study. The objective of the programme is to provide opportunities for intensive research with specific focus on NTS issues at national, regional and sub-regional level
All the publications under the Mahbub Ul Haq Awards can be accessed through the RCSS Digital Library.
