Twenty years after India embarked on economic reforms, the world's second most populous country is transforming itself from a bit player to a major power in world affairs. Will India fulfill its economic potential and become an engine of world growth, or will its often-chaotic politics thwart its ambitions? Will it be a reliable, democratic partner for the United States in Asia and beyond or an unpredictable wildcard in the international system? Does its young and growing population promise a demographic dividend or portend a potential disaster? Speakers will discuss what the rise of India means for the United States in terms of geopolitics, business, and development.
