Virtual seminar organized by Department of International Relations and Governance Studies ‘Ukraine Crisis and South Asian Geopolitics’

The Department of International Relations and Governance Studies, Shiv Nadar University, Delhi-NCR invites you to a session titled Ukraine Crisis and South Asian Geopolitics’ by Prof. C. Raja Mohan, Senior Fellow, Asia Society Policy Institute, Delhi on 17 March, from 12:00PM to 1:30PM.

The Russian war in Ukraine, widely seen as a hinge moment in global politics, is also a turning point in the region’s relations with the United States, Europe, Russia and China. The war is testing the traditional meaning of ‘strategic autonomy’ in India and the future of Pakistan’s alliances with the US and China. The developments in Ukraine also raise questions about India’s claims for a “sphere of influence” in the Subcontinent and the management of relations between a dominant power and its weaker neighbours.
