The Provincial Globalisation programme explores processes of ‘provincial globalisation’ in India by studying transnational connections between Overseas Indians and their home regions, especially the effects of ‘reverse flows’ of resources, including remittances, philanthropy, investments, and knowledge. Provincial Globalisation is a collaborative international research programme of the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research (AISSR), University of Amsterdam, and the National Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS), Bangalore, India, funded by the Integrated Programme of WOTRO Science for Global Development, the Netherlands.
