India and the U.S. share a relationship like none other, a relationship that can use matters of immediacy to energize and build the necessary confidence to disagree and argue those of international concern. This will require ambition and a sense for vision, but has the potential to draw India and the U.S. into a dialogue that will help shape a more constructive and balanced twenty-first century.
Rudhra Chaudhuri, Senior Lecturer at the Department of War Studies and the Indian Institute at King’s College London, is the author of this week’s India in Transition article, “Beyond Immediacy: India and America in the 21st Century.” In it, he discusses some key issues like Intellectual Property Rights (IPR), defense, and the Right to Protect (R2P) doctrine.
Chaudhuri is also the author of the recent book Forged in Crisis: India and the United States Since 1947. Follow him on Twitter.
