Jaisankar Sarma

Jaisankar Sarma was awarded PhD for his work on the ‘Experience of World Vision India Fieldworkers’ which looks specifically at the ‘Role and Discretion at the Interface of Organisation and Communities’. Using Street-Level Bureaucracy by Lipsky (1980), this research examined the tensions experienced by NGO fieldworkers, discretion they exercised and the coping mechanisms they put in place in responding to such tensions in their work. It adds to and expands the street-level bureaucracy in important ways.  This is what Jai wrote in the acknowledgement section of his thesis, "I want to express my profound gratitude to the faculty and staff at the OCMS who provided a rich learning environment that was flexible in nature and fitting for people like me who return to pursue academic scholarship after a gap of many years. OCMS faculty were a caring group of Christian scholars who provided intellectual stimulation and support along the way."
