Research Partnership

16 November: Counterpoint is delighted to announce a new research partnership with the British Council India and a coalition of other participating organisations. The project ‘Re-Imagine: India-Britain Cultural Relations in the 21st Century’ will map all aspects of the Britain-India relationship in the context of changing social and economic fortunes and in the light of a long shared history. The aim will be to understand the relationship today in order to suggest ways of recalibrating it along mutually beneficial lines in the future.
