Using the close relationship between coactions of discrete groups and Fell bundles, we introduce a procedure for inducing a $C^*$-coaction $\delta\colon D\to D\otimes C^*(G/N)$ of a quotient group $G/N$ of a discrete group $G$ to a $C^*$-coaction $\Ind\delta\colon\Ind D\to \Ind D\otimes C^*(G)$ of $G$. We show that induced coactions behave in many respects similarly to induced actions. In particular, as an analogue of the well known imprimitivity theorem for induced actions we prove that the crossed products $\Ind D\times_{\Ind\delta}G$ and $D\times_{\delta}G/N$ are always Morita equivalent. We also obtain nonabelian analogues of a theorem of Olesen and Pedersen which show that there is a duality between induced coactions and twisted actions in the sense of Green. We further investigate amenability of Fell bundles corresponding to induced coactions.
