By creating institutes which connect Brazil, Russia, India and China.
The India Institute will be the leading academic centre for the study of and research on contemporary India. It is through graduate teaching, high-quality research, high-profile events and mutually beneficial partnerships that an understanding in Europe of the issues India faces today will be developed.
The India Institute is building up strong partnerships with government, academic, media and corporate sectors in India, with existing support and partnership already received from the Ministry of External Affairs, Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce (FICCI), the Avantha Group and the Ministry of Culture, amongst others.
The India Institute has recently been selected as one of only two institutions in the UK chosen by the Indian government to host a new Tagore Centre for Global Thought. Engaging with scholarly audiences and the wider public, this Centre will focus on Rabindranath Tagore, his philosophies and engagement with ideas and cultures from across the globe.
The King’s India Institute will become an outstanding academic centre for the study of and research on modern India. In order to achieve its full potential, the Institute requires support for Fellowships, scholarships and visiting academic experts.
‘This new Institute at King’s could not have come at a better time. Now is the time to study India, to invest in India and to work with India. The rise of India and other nations is good for the people of those countries; it is good for the world; and it brings immense opportunities for a country like Britain that is able to seize them.’ Former British Foreign Secretary, Rt Hon William Hague
