India and the Global Order

Brookings is closed today, December 10, due to inclement weather, and all programs have been cancelled.

Summary

India faces a defining period. Its status as a global power is not only recognized but increasingly institutionalized, even as geopolitical shifts create both opportunities and challenges. India experienced rapid growth through participation in the existing multilateral order — now its development strategy makes it dependent on this order. With critical interests in almost every major multilateral regime and vital stakes in several emerging ones, India has no choice but to influence the evolving multilateral order if it is to sustain its own interests.

On December 10, the Managing Global Order project (MGO) and the India Project will host a discussion on how India might approach the global order. Based on assessments included in their new book Shaping the Emerging World: India and the Multilateral Order, panelists will discuss whether India will adhere to existing international norms and institutions, challenge the present order primarily for effect and seeking greater accommodation in existing global institutions or contribute in partnership with others to shape emerging norms and regimes, particularly on energy, food, climate, oceans and cyber security.

Panelists will include Bruce Jones, senior fellow and director of MGO; Waheguru Pal Singh Sidhu, senior fellow at the Center for International Cooperation; and Tanvi Madan, fellow and director of the India Project. Daniel Kliman, senior advisor at the German Marshall Fund of the United States, will serve as the as discussant, and Ted Piccone, acting vice president and director of Foreign Policy at Brookings, will moderate the discussion. Brookings President Strobe Talbott will give introductory remarks.

After the remarks, panelists will take audience questions.
