As the Asian Development Research Institute ADRI) steps into the 26th year of its existence, it’s a great, emotional moment for its members. This 25 year journey, which has been quite a challenging and encouraging one, just would not have been possible without the support and the warmth of the organisation’s well-wishers, infused into its functioning day after day. All through our journey so far, we have been playing an important role not only in conducting social science research, but in simultaneously influencing the policy formation through wide interactions with development functionaries and preparation of critical advocacy materials. The Institute now plans to celebrate its Silver Jubilee in the grandest manner possible during 2016-17, again with the support and good wishes of its friends and well wishers.
