As Carnegie India completes its first year in New Delhi, please join us for a reflection on the extraordinary turbulence in the international system today and the policy challenges that it presents for India. Many dominant assumptions in Delhi about economic globalization, movement of goods and people across borders, multilateral institutions, and great power politics are now in question amidst the political discontinuity in Washington and several other key capitals marked by the election of Donald Trump as the president of the United States last November. Leading this reflection are William J. Burns, Ashley J. Tellis, Sanjaya Baru, and C. Raja Mohan.
