The Jindal School of International Affairs (JSIA) at O.P. Jindal Global University in Sonipat, India, is a new cooperation partner of the Institute for European Global Studies at the University of Basel. The two institutions will start their cooperation with the development of student exchange programs.

Representatives from both universities have signed a Memorandum of Understanding enacting the cooperation. This cooperation intends to allow students from the Institute for European Global Studies to spend one or two semesters at the JSIA during their Master's degree program. In return, JSIA students can come to Basel for a similar duration. There will be no study fees at the host university for the exchange students.
