Q&A: The India–U.S. trade dispute and India’s evolving geopolitical role
President of the Observer Research Foundation Samir Saran describes what lies behind current India–U.S. tensions and how they relate to structural changes in the world order
The world is experiencing accelerating and intensifying geopolitical and geoeconomic change, becoming not only multipolar but also multiconceptual. The Global Future Council on Geopolitics will provide intellectual guidance to the Forum’s work in this area, and will shape a number of Forum work streams including the Global Risks Report. Areas of focus for the council include: deciphering an increasingly multiconceptual world, in which intranational and international differences on key norms and values appear to be widening and hardening; examining pressures on existing institutions, agreements and alliances with a view to shaping an agenda for multilateral reform and renewal; and developing a systems view of the geopolitical landscape, with particular attention paid to the intersection of geopolitics with other fields – notably economics, technology, society and the environment.
