Indian Elections and Beyond: Refocusing U.S.-India Engagement

Recorded on May 4, 2009

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

India is in the midst of its national elections.  While local development issues are foremost on the minds of India's rural voters, terrorism in the wake of last November's attacks in Mumbai and the impact of the global economic downturn also are driving the election campaign.  Voting is being conducted in five phases, ending on May 13th, following which a new Indian government will take the reins.  What kind of government is likely to emerge?  Should we expect major changes in Indian foreign policy priorities?  What will this mean for the future direction of U.S.-India ties?  India-China relations?  Indo-Pakistani tensions and regional trends?  Please join us for an event with distinguished experts who will help explain the significance of India's elections and their implications for the future of U.S.-India ties.
