2017 marks the 70th anniversary of the independence of India: a country described as the most important swing state in the international system. India’s status as a rising power has been some decades in the making. However, the rise of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has presented cause for reflection on what his leadership means for India’s foreign policy and, by extension, for the world.

In conjunction with the launch of the special issue of International Affairs, ‘India’s rise at 70’, the panellists and authors of the special issue debate stasis and change in Indian foreign policy under Modi and describe the broader implications of his premiership.

This event will be followed by a reception.

This event marks the beginning of a new partnership with Oxford University Press, International Affairs’ new publisher.
