At a time of growing geo-political competition in the Indo-Pacific, there has been a primary focus on the roles of the United States and China in regional security dynamics. Yet, the strategic rivalry between India and China is also having a decisive impact. In this joint seminar, Dr Manjeet Pardesi will lead a discussion about the Sino-Indian relationship and its implications for the geo-politics of the emerging Indo-Pacific region. His comments will focus especially on Indian perspectives, based on his forthcoming article, “Modi’s China Strategy – Managing an Asymmetric Rivalry”. Dr Yogesh Joshi will act as lead commentator, after which the chair will invite questions and comments from all participants. Dr Pardesi’s paper will be available to all seminar participants, who are requested to read it before the session but not to share it more widely, as it remains under review.
