About Carnegie India:

Carnegie India, the sixth international center of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, opens in April 2016 in New Delhi. As with Carnegie’s centers in Beijing, Beirut, Brussels, Moscow, and Washington, Carnegie India is staffed and led by local experts who collaborate extensively with colleagues around the world.

The center’s research and programmatic focus will include the political economy of reform in India, foreign and security policy, and the role of innovation and technology in India’s internal transformation and international relations. It will build on decades of scholarship on the region across Carnegie’s programs, in particular the work of Vice President of Studies George Perkovich, Senior Associate Ashley J. Tellis, and Senior Associate Milan Vaishnav, while placing special emphasis on developing a cadre of young, up-and-coming Indian scholars. Website: http://carnegieindia.org/
