Princeton University, Sciences Po and Columbia University have launched a major three-year research project on Muslim communities in India with the support of a generous $385,000 grant from the Henry Luce Foundation.

The project is jointly developed by Bernard Haykel, professor of Near Eastern studies and director of the Institute for Transregional Study of the Contemporary Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia at Princeton; and Christophe Jaffrelot, senior research fellow at Sciences Po in Paris and professor of Indian politics and sociology at the King’s India Institute in London, who was a 2013-14 Global Scholar at Princeton. Manan Ahmed, associate professor of history at Columbia University, will lead the development of visualization and spatial mapping highlighting the results of the research. The US Sciences Po Foundation and the Alliance Program are also key partners of this project.
