The Present and Future of India-China Relations
Tansen Sen

This talk examines the complexities of contemporary India-China relations in the broader Asian context. It primarily focuses on three aspects: the territorial and economic concerns in bilateral relations; the impact of cultural (mis)perceptions; and the contending regional and global aspirations of the two countries. The talk will also attempt to outline the possible ways in which the relations between the two countries could improve, especially through mutual understanding and collaborations in the arenas of regional and global concerns.
