Since our founding in 2004 with the generous support of the Starr Foundation, we have continued to enrich our commitment to critical inquiry and collaborative scholarship.  We at ICI believe that the dynamic relationship between people and ideas is powerful. We hope you will continue to join us in contributing to greater understanding of both divergences and commonalities amongst India, China, and the United States.
