India-US Strategic Cooperation in South Asia: A Track-Two Dialogue

The Institute of Peace and Conflict Studies, in collaboration with the Center for Contemporary Conflict (CCC), US Naval Postgraduate School and the India International Centre (IIC) with support from the US Defense Threat Reduction Agency held a two-day conference at the IIC, New Delhi in September 2008. The project seeks to examine the current status of the India-US strategic partnership, the progress achieved in the original partnership areas, the challenges facing the relationship, and the possibilities for improving strategic cooperation.  With this insight, the project will formulate ways to enhance India-US strategic ties over the next decade
