Deadlock to Detente: India’s Strategic Doctrine and the Burgeoning Peace with Pakistan @ Dorothy Hirshon Suite
Oct 1 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Deadlock to Detente: India's Strategic Doctrine and the Burgeoning Peace with Pakistan @ Dorothy Hirshon Suite | New York | New York | United States
ICI is pleased to host a discussion by Neil Padukone and to celebrate  his new book, Beyond South Asia: India’s Strategic Evolution and the Reintegration of the Subcontinent (Bloomsbury, 2014).

Book description: Awash with militancy, ground zero for climate change, and on the brink of nuclear war, the Indian subcontinent has long been known as “the world’s most dangerous place.” But after decades of deadlock in the subcontinent, India is moving beyond South Asia for its strategic needs—and making peace with Pakistan in the process.

This launch of Beyond South Asia traces the evolution of India’s strategic thinking since 1947, comprehensively analyzing New Delhi’s foreign policy. India’s failed attempt to unite and dominate the subcontinent following independence led to distrust in South Asia. But this worldview has shifted as India, needing markets, energy resources, and ways to balance against China, has developed economic and military ties in Central and Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Africa, the southern Indian Ocean, and beyond. To do so requires more stability in South Asia, leading India to seek enhanced cooperation and an economic reintegration of the subcontinent.

Neil Padukone is a Geopolitics Fellow at the Takshashila Institution and a former Public Service Fellow at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, his work has been published in The Atlantic, Foreign Policy, the Journal of International Affairs, Newsweek’s Daily Beast, The National Interest, the World Affairs Journal, the Huffington Post, and the Economic and Political Weekly, among others. Neil is a former foreign affairs columnist at the Christian Science Monitor and South-Central Asia commentator for Russia Today news.

China and India: New Urban Forms, New Fields of Inquiry Conference @ TBA
Apr 16 @ 9:00 am – Apr 18 @ 5:00 pm
China and India: New Urban Forms, New Fields of Inquiry Conference @ TBA | Kalisz | Greater Poland Voivodeship | Poland

 

China and India: New Urban Forms, New Fields of Inquiry will explore new ways of looking at the interplay of the conceptual and the material in studies of urban India and China. A collaborative and exploratory field-building exercise, this conference will pursue alternatives to theories of social science and design that sometimes draw upon universalist and/or linear assumptions about processes such as capitalism, urbanization, and modernity. Instead, our conference participants, many of whom have engaged in ethnographic, interpretive, or other qualitative approaches to urban forms and processes, will pursue new concepts and expose areas of future inquiry based on their work on urban and urbanized spaces of China and India. ICI believes that a conference engaging scholars committed to theorizing from careful, contextualized studies of Chinese and Indian cities has the potential to create new fields of inquiry. Please check back for updates on logistical information about this conference.
