The India China Institute (ICI) has successfully built an international network of scholars from various disciplines. Over the past decade, ICI has supported over 100 Indian, Chinese and U.S. based independent researchers, scholars and opinion makers and offered the academic, financial, and professional support needed to focus on trilateral exchanges.

After ICI scholars complete their initial work, the opportunities to remain involved with us are limitless, as they continue to be engaged in the development of our programs. ICI scholars have served as academic consultants in shaping course curriculum, both for The New School and universities in India and China. Not only does ICI provide opportunities to publish research findings and journal articles, but ICI scholars have contributed to our principal research projects and actively participate at ICI-hosted events as respondents, facilitators and presenters.

ICI scholars are regarded as prominent figures in their fields of study and have been called on by national and international media outlets to address current social, cultural political, economic and environmental issues that affect India, China and the United States. Furthermore, our affiliations with The New School provide an environment for established scholars to visit, conduct research and collaborate with faculty.

The connections made during the time spent at The New School have created lasting relationships. The opportunity to engage in important conversations has created a vibrant network that has continued conversations beyond just ICI. Listed below are the current programs and initiatives, as well as a list of current and previous ICI scholars.

For me, ICI is the most exciting institutional development since coming to The New School in 2002. Not only is ICI bringing new people, new knowledge, and new projects together, but it is really forging a path previously not taken by other institutes or universities: that is, the study of India–China–US relations as an integrated whole rather than separate, insular domains of activity and research.
