Overview

The India-China Knowledge and Capacity Building Initiative (ICKCBI) links individuals and institutions in the pursuit of new scholarship, trilateral conversations, and nurtures a growing community of interest and investigation on international relations, culture, and interactions between India and China. ICKCBI’s objective is nothing short of surmounting the limitations of area studies to develop a unique trilateral vision that fosters cross-disciplinary perspectives and a collaborative approach to problem-solving.

To do this, ICKCBI, with the support of the Ford Foundation, will select fifteen exemplary scholars from the New School, Yunnan University, and the University of Calcutta to participate in a unique program. These scholars will come together in the summer of 2011 for one month in Kunming, China, and one month in Kolkata, India, to work collaboratively on research projects. With the help of institutions, professors, and business professionals in each location, student teams will investigate a topic of their choice and present their findings at an international conference at the end of the summer. Three alternate scholars from each institution will also be selected.
