Map of 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:

  • 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.
