Few other scholars had as much impact on South Asian studies in the United States as Professor Stephen P. Cohen, who passed away on October 27, 2019. “Steve” was a popular colleague and mentor to generations of scholars, leaders and policymakers, whether at the University of Illinois as a professor, at the U.S. State Department as an adviser, at the Brookings Institution as a senior fellow, or in his many visits to India and the subcontinent.
Please join us for a public event to remember Stephen P. Cohen’s academic and policy legacy, and the continued relevance of “scholar-practitioners” like him. The discussion will focus on his contribution to the study of India’s strategic and military affairs, India-Pakistan relations, and non-traditional security issues in South Asia.
