Public Engagement

The Mumbai Center organizes several lectures, panels, workshops, and creative programs to make academic knowledge more accessible to a diverse audience. Through forums and training workshops, we share research evidence and global best practices with government and civil society organizations to foster informed decision-making. Functioning as a network, we link faculty and experts at Columbia University and other Columbia Global Centers with regional scholars, government, alumni, civil and private sector organizations, students, and innovators.
