The Kohima Institute is an independent research centre that engages critically with socio-political, cultural, historical, environmental and developmental problems affecting communities in highland Asia. Founded in 2013, and registered as a trust, the institute collaborates with research institutions in India and abroad in designing and carrying out research, engaging in analysis, and disseminating findings in academic symposia and peer-reviewed publications.


Research Projects

A research-focused institution, the Kohima Institute engages in a variety of research projects that receive funding from a variety of donors, foundations, and public and private funding bodies. The wide-ranging expertise of Institute scholars also means that research projects can range from highly theoretical works, to works involving technical skills such as the collection of quantitative data and surveys for development projects. On this page we will provide highlights for each current, on-going project, and provide links to more detailed project documents as they are made available by each project team.
