About the Project
The emergence of China and more recently, India, has reshaped relations and produced a broader area of economic integration in Asia. Even in southern Asia, where the strategic triangle of China, India, and Pakistan has resulted in flashpoints and suspicions, both India and China have kept their sights on increasing trade and economic growth as a security imperative for the long term. However, southern Asia's security, political, and economic foundations face stresses that could profoundly alter its evolution, usher in the return of geopolitics, and reshape political and economic relations globally. This two-year project, generously funded by the MacArthur Foundation, explored potential flashpoints and promising areas for cooperation among China, India, and Pakistan—and identified areas where the United States can help. Liz Economy, Alyssa Ayres, and Dan Markey explored these issues in a roundtable series and several publications. The project culminated in a capstone symposium, Foreign Affairs article, and a Council report in 2016.
The Project on the New Geopolitics of China, India, and Pakistan was made possible by a grant from the MacArthur Foundation.
