India Day @ Oxford

About India Day @ Oxford

With a strong historical connection between India and Oxford, including the invaluable contribution of its alumni as well as Oxford's unique position as a world leader in learning, Network18 proposed an initiative in partnership with the University. The 'India Day' at Oxford, an annual program, emerged out of this thought. Every 2nd year, the forum will focus on a 'theme' which will be amplified through contextual discussions amongst key participants which will include key policy makers, business leaders, intellectuals and prominent Oxford alumni.

The theme for the inaugural 'India Day @ Oxford 2013' is 'India - A political economy for the 21st Century' which is an overarching topic that can allow for a meaningful multi-faceted discussion.

The London Leg will be followed by the India Leg in the third quarter of this year and will have participation from economic and political sphere from UK and India.

For the first ever "India Day @ Oxford" The Chancellor of the University of Oxford, Lord Christopher Patten of Barnes, will address the meeting. From India, the Minister for External Affairs Mr Salman Khurshid, and Senior leader of Opposition , Mr Arun Jaitley, will also join the discussions. Dr.Nandini Gooptu, an Oxford academic, who has studied enterprise culture will talk on how that is playing out in India. Kate Sullivan, another Oxford academic with a long association with India will talk about India's new role in the global stage.
