Through speaker events, institutional partnerships, professional development programs, and scholarly research, the India & South Asia Program was dedicated to promoting an understanding of a dynamic region at a time when its geopolitical dynamics are of critical importance to the world. While formal activities as part of this program have now concluded, the Future of Diplomacy Project will continue to advance conversations and research about the changing political role of countries in the region.
