The ‘100 Foot Journey Club’ is an initiative of the South Asia Centre and the High Commission of India to the UK.
At the inaugural event in 10 May 2016, 'Rethinking the Global Monetary System' by Dr Raghuram Rajan, Governor of the Reserve Bank of India, Navtej Sarna, the High Commissioner of India shared with the audience the origin of the 100 Foot Journey Club. In a meeting with the Director of LSE in March 2016, he proposed that regular events be held jointly on issues of contemporary relevance, including research being carried out on India by LSE academics in order to bolster long standing relations and close proximity of LSE and the High Commission of India. The proposal was well taken and it was immediately agreed to strengthen the existing ties with LSE through a new Club.
The Club hosts academic events and other activities of mutual interest. It organises around 6 events annually, including panel discussions, film screenings etc. at LSE, India House or the Nehru Centre.
