Looking Back, Informing the Future: A Multidisciplinary Research Project on the 1947 Partition of British India

2017 marks the 70th anniversary of the Partition of British India, as well as the launch of Harvard’s South Asia Institute’s major research on Partition. Panelists Rahul Mehrotra (Professor of Urban Design and Planning, Harvard University), Tarun Khanna (Director, Harvard South Asia Institute; Jorge Paulo Lemann Professor at the Harvard Business School), Karim R. Lakhani (Professor of Business Administration at the Harvard Business School) and Jennifer Leaning (François-Xavier Bagnoud Professor of the Practice of Health and Human Rights; Director, FXB Center for Health and Human Rights, Harvard University) discuss the complexities of large-scale human migration and resettlements. Such lessons can inform current cross-border displacement and the corresponding growth of urban settlements and cities.
