The Provincial Globalisation research programme (‘ProGlo’) explores transnational connections between Overseas Indians and their home regions, especially the ‘reverse flows’ of resources into India and their effects. The research is documenting a broad range of resource transfers by migrants, including economic resources (such as household remittances, investments in land and philanthropy), social remittances (including flows of ideas, support for NGOs), and cultural flows (such as religious donations), and their influences on regional level development.The programme consists of several independent but interlinked research projects located in three Indian regions – coastal Andhra Pradesh, coastal Karnataka and central Gujarat.
