The Hoover Project on China’s Global Sharp Power invites you to Xi Jinping’s Himalayan Overreach featuring Brahma Chellaney, Professor of Strategic Studies, Centre for Policy Research, New Delhi, India.
Chinese expansionism under Xi Jinping is injecting greater instability and tension into the Indo-Pacific region. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the relationship between China and India, which make up more than a third of humanity and over a fifth of the global economy. That relationship has come under severe strain following China’s stealth encroachments in the northernmost borderlands of Ladakh in 2020. The aggression promises to sharpen the rivalry between the two Asian giants and engender important changes in Indian defense, trade and foreign policies.
After his remarks, Professor Chellaney will join Hoover Institution Fellows Larry Diamond and David Mulford in conversation.
