Project on Transitional Justice

When do countries ask for reparations, if at all? This project explores the path to colonial-era reparations taken by some countries in Africa, and Asia.

Project on South Asia


How did modern South Asia’s borders and conflicts come to be, and how are they inter-related? This project explores the impact of history and politics that connects South Asian countries to each other.

Project on Strategic Military Culture in India

This project with Prof. Rohan Mukherjee (Yale-NUS, Singapore) aims to ask and answer questions about colonial and post-colonial strategic culture in the Indian army, yielding insights into the modern Indian military’s perceptions about the use of force, threat environment, and theories of victory. It uses documents collected in private and government archives in India and the UK.
