'India at 70', the LSE India Summit 2017 (supported by Apollo Tyres Ltd.) took place at the India Habitat Centre in Delhi from 29-31 March. There were four panel discussions on contemporary issues, namely Corporate Social Responsibility in India, the concept of virtual water, foreign policy, and the Constitution. In addition, there was a special exhibition curated by the Partition Museum, a conversation on LSE’s longstanding relationship with India featuring Professors Michael Cox and Ramachandra Guha and a workshop on quantitative methods for the social sciences.
More than 600 people attended over the three days including journalists, academics from India and abroad, policymakers, diplomats and both former and current LSE students. Read the Summit Report for an overview of speakers and sessions, as well as snapshots from the media coverage.
