In his latest article for the Australian Journal of International Affairs, “Explaining the asymmetry in the Sino-Indian Strategic Rivalry”, Dr. Manjeet Pardesi argues that while Chinese elites do not consider India a regional peer, a mindset that predates the countries’ material power asymmetry, they nonetheless view India as a rival as both vie for influence in each other’s traditional power spheres. China’s rise in the Indian Ocean region and India’s “Act East” strategy have led to increased tensions between the two countries. And trends in India’s and China’s respective relationships with the United States are also shaping and impacting Sino-Indian relations.
Dr. Xiaoyu Pu will elaborate on “status” in the context of the Sino-Indian relationship and how this relates to the themes outlined in Dr. Pardesi’s article and remarks.
This seminar will be on-the-record and recorded on both Zoom and YouTube.
