INDIA’S QUESTIONABLE FUTURE
Lifelong Learning Society Distinguished Professor of Current Affairs
Recipient of the LLS 2002 Excellence in Teaching Award
DESCRIPTION: The world’s largest democracy, and its third largest economy, India is often touted as a model for political and economic development and a rising power of the 21st-century. While India’s potential appears to be great, it remains challenged by a wide range of issues that could derail the Asian power’s assent. Combating terrorism, the Kashmir question, a deadly rivalry with Pakistan, and a nuclear arms race with China represent India’s principal challenges. The recent lessening of support for the country’s once-loved Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, further complicates India’s development. In this special, one-time lecture, Professor Morton will analyze India’s rise to near-great power status and review its troubled path moving forward. Implications for American foreign policy makers will also be considered.
