China’s relationship with India has wide-ranging economic and security implications for the country. Understanding how the Chinese conduct diplomacy can help India better prepare for future negotiations. In his new book, ‘The Long Game: How the Chinese Negotiate with India’, former foreign secretary of India, Vijay Gokhale, unpacks the dynamics of India-China relations through the prism of six historical and recent events. The book gives a practitioner’s insight into strategies, tactics, and tools that China uses for diplomatic negotiations.

Join us for an ‘India and the World’ webinar on July 28, where we will host Vijay Gokhale, James Crabtree, and Indrani Bagchi. The discussion will explore the India-China relationship that has been at the heart of foreign policy discourse since the 1950s. The talk will be moderated by Rudra Chaudhuri.
