India’s Time Has Come: Book Discussion with Alyssa Ayres

  • Kimmel Center - Room 369 (map)

The world's largest democracy, one of the world's largest and fastest growing economies, and soon to be the world's most populous nation. How did India get here, and where will it go next? How does it see itself in the modern world? How does India's power influence today's global politics? How has the Trump Administration's foreign policy decisions affected the dynamics in South Asia? What is the future of the India-US relationship?

Alyssa Ayres, the Senior Fellow for India, Pakistan, and South Asia at the Council on Foreign Relations, will join us to discuss her new book, Our Time Has Come: How India Is Making its Place in the World (Oxford University Press), which explores the circumstances and consequences of India's economic growth and rising power. 

She will be joined in conversation by Tunku Varadarajan, the Virginia Hobbs Carpenter Research Fellow at Stanford's Hoover Institution, former editor of Newsweek, contributing editor at POLITICO, and an adjunct professor at NYU.

Lunch will be served!

This event is cosponsored by South Asia @ NYU, the South Asia Society, and the Politics Society.
