Donald McDonald: “I regard my period there as a Fellow in 1993 as one of the great gifts to my adult life and remain indebted to the Institute for that period of study, reflection and learning.”

H.E. Hon. Mr. Justice R.S. Pathak: “I count it a privilege and a great pleasure to have been invited to work at the Institute. I believe that it plays a significant role in bringing intellectuals from all parts of the globe together, in promoting the basic ethos of the concept of One World and in weaving a valuable network of its values.”

Masahiro Hamashita: “The Institute has been and still is one of the most admirable academic places for developing the possibility of the humanities.”
