Title: India: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
Speaker: Dr. Stanley Wolpert
Professor Wolpert will analyze India’s remarkable economic development, the opportunities created by the youthful majority of its population, and the challenges posed by the lagging rural sector. He will also discuss India’s strategic partnership with the United State and the terrorist threats the country faces, paying special attention to India-Pakistan relations and the long-standing conflict over Kashmir. Wolpert will consider both the nightmare scenario of nuclear conflict between these two countries as well as suicide bombings, and the prospects for peace and progress.
