Soon to be the world’s largest population, and with a rapidly growing economy and an increasing presence in global affairs, India’s place in the world is changing.
Hosting the G20 this year, the New Delhi summit in September 2023 is a symbol of India’s growing might, moving from emerging to prominent player on the world stage.
However, challenges faced by the country are substantial. Frosty relations with China, ongoing tension with Pakistan, climate catastrophe, and food insecurity all represent significant global concerns to India.
Internally, the hurdles are imposing. Millions still live below the poverty line and demographic instability poses risks to the country. The state of democracy across the country is consistently questioned.
At this event, Rahul Gandhi explores key questions including:
How does India see the impact of the war in Ukraine?
Will New Delhi be able to balance relations between the West and Russia?
Can India offer an alternative vision for Asia that challenges China?
Internally, to what extent is democracy in India under strain?
Can India’s economy evolve to create a wide-reaching, prosperous nation in the coming years?
As with all member events, questions from the audience drive the conversation.
