Content from the Brookings Institution India Center is now archived. After seven years of an impactful partnership, as of September 11, 2020, Brookings India is now the Centre for Social and Economic Progress, an independent public policy institution based in India.
Guest interviewer Tanvi Madan, fellow and director of the India Project in Foreign Policy, Ambassador Shivshankar Menon, distinguished fellow in Foreign Policy, and Dhruva Jaishankar, fellow in Foreign Policy at Brookings India, examine India’s foreign policy, particularly toward the U.S. and China, as well as its counter-terrorism approach in the wake of a cross-border attack on an Indian military position in Kashmir.
“The Indian priority is certainly to transform India, not to score points or do the other many grand things that strategists and people will expect you to do,” says Ambassador Menon.
“I know the phrase ‘global war on terror’ has a certain baggage, but in some ways I think framing this as a global problem, rather than an India-Pakistan problem, has really been another element in that,” says Jaishankar.
