Mission

The India China Institute (ICI) at The New School supports research, teaching and discussion on India, China and the US, with special focus on making comparisons and understanding interactions between the three countries as well as their joint impact on the rest of the world. ICI is the hub of an international network of scholars, leaders, and opinion-makers working to promote academic and public understandings of India and China.

Scholarly Network

From graduate students and junior faculty to prominent senior scholars, the India China Institute works with an impressive network of leading thinkers on India and China. Find out more about the work being done by our scholars and scholarly resources on India China.

Emerging Scholars

This initiative provides an opportunity for young scholars from India and China to present their ongoing research in a formal academic setting. An annual international conference in NY offers an important venue for up and coming scholars to showcase their work.

Student Fellows

Since the inception of ICI, active engagement with students has been central to the dissemination of information concerning India China studies. Every year ICI supports a group of students as they head to India and China to conduct academic research and fieldwork.
