The project on Global India is being implemented from April 1, 2017 to March 31, 2021. The main coordinator is Dublin City University. From the Polish side, dr. hab. Jakub Zajączkowski, Institute of International Relations, Faculty of Political Science and International Studies of the University of Warsaw.
The project aims to promote knowledge about India and the relationship between India and the EU. Despite the growing importance of the role and position of India in international economic and political relations, there is still a shortage of information and knowledge about modern India in the European Union. This is manifested, among others in the absence of study programs that focus on the problems of modern-day India at PhD level in Europe. The Global India project aims to fill this gap. In addition, the program will be used to deepen knowledge and research on the modern economy and policy of India.
The following activities take place as part of the project:
– implementation of interdisciplinary doctoral studies, focusing on India as a rising global and regional power. As part of the project, 15 doctoral dissertations on India will be prepared by scholarship / young researchers selected for this purpose;
– scientific seminars, conferences and scientific articles, chapters in publications, papers on Indian issues, recommendations for the EU in the context of policy towards India.
The consortium consists of leading European and Indian universities such as: Dublin City University, Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals, King’s College London, KU-Leuven, University of Heidelberg, University of Warsaw, Banaras Hindu University Varanasi, University of Calcutta, Jamia Millia Islamia University, Jawaharlal Nehru University, Mumbai University, Jadavpur Universit.
