UCL in South Asia
There are more than 100 partnerships and collaborations underway within the South Asia region, which includes India, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Bhutan and the Maldives.
Current areas of collaboration include:
- Urban health (UCL Institute for Global Health’s longstanding partnership with India non-profit the Society for Nutrition, Education and Health Action)
- UCL Economics Professor Orazio Attanasio received the Klaus J. Jacobs Research Prize to implement an intervention in rural India providing children with better quality childcare
- UCL, working in partnership with Difficult Dialogues, is helping to deliver a conference entitled “Difficult Dialogues 2018: Gender equality: for everyone’s benefit?” from 9-11th February 2018 in Goa, India. The conference will look at how Indian gender constructs affect fundamental aspects of daily lives and citizenship. Led by Sarah Hawkes, Professor of Global Public Health, UCL's contribution includes the delivery of three panels. These will focus on topics linked to gender and masculinity. If you would like to learn more about the conference, or attend it, please visit http://difficultdialogues.com/.
Every year UCL welcomes more than 500 students from countries in South Asia.
UCL’s South Asia network is open to academic and professional services staff from departments across UCL interested in the region.
Led by Professor Marie Lall, Pro-Vice-Provost (South Asia), the network meets regularly throughout the year to discuss current and future activity.
