About The Center

Interdisciplinary Development Research and Action Center (IDRAC) draws its name from the Urdu word Idrac(k) ادراک which is a polysemic word signifying the broad plurality of processes and connotations associated with “thinking”, including sensory awareness and perception, cognition, understanding, interpretation, reasoning, and meaning-making.

While on the one hand IDRAC evokes superabundance and boundlessness, on the other hand, it is also evocative of human finitude and limits when it comes to accessing truth and making sense of experience. The social significance of IDRAC, as a word, stems precisely from its location at the intersection of power and limit, i.e., the power to understand reality and bring about positive change, and the realization of limitations that bind thinking, perception, cognition, and the articulations of telos.
