Over the last few months we have organised several OCSI DIALOGUES with the intent to increase fellowship amongst our members and to enhance intellectual engagement of the Society. Encouraged by their success, The PresidentOxford and Cambridge Society of India on behalf of the Oxford and Cambridge Society of India delighted to announce an international conference,  OCSI DIALOGUES 2018-INDIA PERSPECTIVES, to be held on the Wednesday, 4th of April 2018.

The day long conference is organised by The Oxford and Cambridge Society of India in collaboration with The India International Centre and is being held at the C.D.Deshmukh Auditorium at the India International Centre.

With space for serious debate fast shrinking today, we plan to create a platform for high level of bipartisan discussion and debate on some of the issues that are important to us in India.
