​Dr.Pratap Bhanu Mehta to join Ashoka University as Vice-Chancellor

Ashoka University has announced the selection of Dr. Pratap Bhanu Mehta as its second Vice Chancellor. He will assume his responsibilities as Vice Chancellor from July 1.

Currently, the President and Chief Executive of Centre for Policy Research (CPR) in New Delhi, Dr.Mehta is one of India’s leading political scientists and an outstanding public intellectual.

He has worked extensively on political theory, intellectual history, constitutional law, politics and society in India, and on international politics.

Dr. Mehta has served on many Government of India bodies like the National Security Advisory Board and the National Knowledge Commission (from which he resigned on a matter of principle). He was also the member of a Supreme Court-appointed committee on elections in Indian universities.

Amartya Sen, Indian economist and Nobel Laureate, said, "Dr. Pratap Bhanu Mehta has established himself as one of India’s finest scholars and public minds, who has inspired a new generation of intellectual enquiry. He has contributed not only to political philosophy and social theory in general, but has also addressed urgent issues of Indian politics and public policy. Mehta has shown an exemplary willingness to broaden the sphere of public reason, and to challenge reigning orthodoxies, while remaining committed to institution building, as exemplified by his constructive leadership of the Centre for Policy Research."
