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.

In Memory: Mario Rutten

It is with great sadness that we announce the demise of Prof. Mario Rutten, Co-director of the Provincial Globalisation programme. Mario led the ProGlo programme with energy and enthusiasm over the last five years, and he continued to work with the students almost till the last day. We are committed to taking his work forward by bringing to fruition the various planned publications and outputs. Mario will be greatly missed by the ProGlo team and his many friends and colleagues across the world.
