India Forum on China

The Institute of Chinese Studies, Delhi (ICS) is organizing the 1st India Forum on China at Goa from 14 to 16 December 2017 in partnership with the University of Goa.  This conference proposal originates in the recognition that it is necessary to analyze and assess China’s increasingly explicit and ambitious strategies of seeking regional and global leadership, evident most recently at the Belt and Road Forum held in Beijing in mid-May. The objective will be to understand the nature and implications of China’s leadership quest, evaluate its strategic narratives, and assess limitations and constraints faced by China in the pursuit of its regional and global goals. This will involve, inter alia, an overview of China’s Belt and Road Initiative, Made in China 2025, its policy of protection of overseas interests as a strategic priority and the growing international presence of the Chinese PLA. To this end, it will bring together renowned scholars and practitioners from India and abroad to discuss and debate these issues in an Indian setting and keeping in mind specific Indian interests and concerns. As it will be held shortly after the 19th Congress of the Communist Party of China, deliberations and outcomes of the Congress will also be reflected in discussions at the Forum.
