University Spin-outs

The 1928 Institute: Founded in 2020 by Kiran Kaur Manku FRSA & Dr Nikita Ved MBE, the 1928 Institute is a University of Oxford spin-out that researches and engages British Indians or the Subcontinent’s diaspora, in addition to working on UK-India relations. The Institute is a continuation of the India League established in 1928 by Krishna Menon which was the first platform for the diaspora in the UK.

Led by academics at Oxford, the Institute conducts empirical research on the evolving needs of the diaspora and translates this to policymakers in Local Authorities, the Civil Service, and Parliamentarians. Their research includes mental health, COVID-19, farmers protests, climate change, and political representation.

The Institute also conducts community engagement to showcase the diaspora’s diverse heritage and culture, and provide a platform for the diaspora. In addition, the 1928 Institute are the Secretariat for the APPG India (Trade & Investment) where they coordinate senior Parliamentarians on the UK-India relationship and the diaspora’s role in the living bridge.
