China and India: Beyond competitive coexistence

Rory Medcalf, the Director of the Lowy Institute’s International Security Program, recently gave public lectures in Washington DC and in Melbourne on China-India relations and the risks of strategic competition between Asia’s rising giants. His Washington talk, at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, sought to identify the ways in which a possible security rivalry between the two powers could be measured. His Melbourne talk, at the inaugural Australia-India Institute conference, looked more broadly at the past, present and future of relations between New Delhi and Beijing.Rory Medcalf
