VENUE:Merion Cricket Club

India Under Modi

| Asia Program

About the Event

Sumit GangulyThe landslide victory in 2014 of the Bharatyia Janata Party, led by Narendra Modi, signaled a major shift in Indian politics, emphasizing economic growth and a new international role for India. How has Modi done so far? What are the implications for relations with Pakistan, China, and the US? To discuss these and other questions, we are pleased to feature FPRI’s Sumit Ganguly, a professor of Political Science at Indiana University, where he directs the Center on American and Global Security. He has been a Fellow of the Woodrow Wilson Center for Scholars, a Visiting Fellow at the Center on Democracy, Development and the Rule of Law and the Center on International Security and Cooperation at Stanford University. He is author or editor of twenty books on South Asia, most recently the Oxford Short Introduction to Indian Foreign Policy for Oxford University Press (2015). His 2011  essay for FPRI, “The Story of Indian Democracy,” is in the top ten most visited essays on FPRI’s website for the first half of 2015.
