To say that the world today is in turmoil is a gross understatement. The old order has broken down. There is no clear leader in this turbulent world. We went from two superpowers to one superpower to the current state of flux, where there is no undisputed superpower. The world, and India, is seeing a rise in populism, nationalism, and deglobalisation. Multilateral organisations - UN, WHO, NATO, EU - are also losing their shine. With China on the back foot, is it time for India to shine? Is the mythical 'Indian Century' finally about to become a reality?
When the dust settles, and the new world order emerges from the current shambles, will India find itself holding a dominant position in the new world, or even in its own backyard?
In this conversation, our eminent speaker will focus on the external challenges India faces in a Post-COVID World - at a time of internal turmoil within India. The conversation will discuss the complex interrelationship between foreign and domestic policy in an uncertain world.
