After the Deal: How Far Can the Indo-US Strategic Partnership Go After the Civilian Nuclear Deal?


Mr. Pal Chaudhuri will discuss the motivations of the interest groups in the US and India who supported the recent bilateral civilian nuclear agreement point to an ambitious agenda for the Indo-US strategic relationship. Domestic politics and a lack of a consensus on future relations in both countries are likely to constrain these agendas in the short-term.
