Chair: Dr Robin Niblett, Director, Chatham House


India is widely recognized as one of the world's fastest-growing economies, but is India a superpower in the making?

The speaker will explore the opportunities for India's ascent to global superpower status and the inevitable obstacles to achieving its full potential. He will argue that unless issues surrounding India's internal governance are addressed and the optimism surrounding its rise is challenged, India's road to superstar status will be far from guaranteed.
