Since May 2020, an ongoing military standoff between Chinese and Indian troops at various points along the two countries’ disputed border has exposed fracture lines in the China-India relationship and heightened the potential for further military escalation. Even with recent statements around disengaging troops, the standoff proved that rivalry between the two powers could affect the prospects for escalation at the border and elsewhere in the region. Please join our speakers, Tanvi Madan, director of the India Project and senior fellow in foreign policy at the Brookings Institution, and Yun Sun, director of the China program and codirector of the East Asia program at the Henry L. Stimson Center, to discuss these risks and U.S. policy options.
