The Centre for International Politics, Organization and Disarmament (CIPOD) at Jawaharlal Nehru University is one of the oldest as well as largest Centres of the School of International Studies (SIS). It is unique in so far as it studies how international relations work by focusing on politics, theory, organizations, diplomacy, security, and geopolitics. 


The Centre came into existence when the Indian School of International Studies (ISIS) merged with JNU in 1970. Its core was a result of an amalgamation of the departments of International Relations and of the Commonwealth existing at the ISIS.
