AboutCarnegie India

Founded in 2016, Carnegie India, based in New Delhi, is part of a robust global network that includes over 150 scholars in Beijing, Beirut, Brussels, Moscow, and Washington. The center focuses primarily on three interrelated programs: technology and society, political economy, and security studies. Led by Indian experts with decades of international and domestic policy experience, Carnegie India engages with governments, policymakers, academics, students, industries, practitioners, and civil society to provide insightful and fresh analysis on India’s pressing challenges and the rising role of India in the world.

Our Priorities

Technology and Society

The program seeks to understand the reciprocal effects technology and society have on each other. It focuses on the future of data, encryption, digital currencies and payments; and norms and rules that may shape global technology governance.

Political Economy

Examination of issues around land markets, agricultural markets, public finance policies and systems, and state institutional capacity, with an emphasis on enforcement functions.

Security Studies

Tracking of India’s proposed strategic transformation, specifically the balancing of continental and maritime commitments; its military modernization under fiscal constraints; its technological innovations; and its efforts to enhance the capacity of the national security state.
