The Indian Institute for Human Settlements (IIHS) is a national education institution committed to the equitable, sustainable and efficient transformation of Indian settlements.

IIHS aims to establish an independently funded and managed National University for Research and Innovation focused on the challenges and opportunities of India’s  urban transition. The proposed IIHS University will host an integrated programme of quality campus-based education and research, training and lifelong learning for working professionals, distance and blended learning, as well as a whole array of practice and advisory services. The university will have a strong interdisciplinary orientation bringing together theory and praxis that is grounded in the South Asian context and also engages with and draws from knowledge across the globe.

News & Events

What is the relationship between theology and the shifting textures of urban life? In contemporary Delhi, stories are told about long-lived jinns as transmitters connecting human beings centuries apart in time. In petitions deposited to jinn-saints in a ruined medieval palace, medieval ideas of justice come together with modern bureaucratic techniques.
Public Lecture. Open for all.
Climate change is one of the defining existential and development challenges of our time. India in general, and Indian cities and settlements in particular are amongst the most vulnerable to climate impacts with hundreds of millions of people at risk.
