Darshan's research lies at the intersection of International Relations
and Political Geography. He aims to understand and explain deep changes
in the structure of international politics and his work is primarily
interested in how the state's claim to territory has been reconfigured
in response to changing patterns of human mobility and settlement. At
MPI-MMG, Darshan co-coordinated an international working group on Public
Space and Diversity and he has also provided inputs to the
Super-Diversity South Africa project.
