How the Rise of India and China Will Affect U.S. Foreign Policy.”Russell Green, the Baker Institute’s Will Clayton Fellow in International Economics, and Steven Lewis, the Baker Institute’s C.V. Starr Transnational China Fellow, will moderate the discussion.When: Thursday, Dec. 13, 6 p.m.Where: Rice University, Baker Hall, Kelly International Conference Facility, 6100 Main St.To U.S. policymakers worried about a long-term threat from China, India looks like a useful counterbalance.

But is India the reliable partner and like-minded custodian of Asian stability that the U.S. foreign policy establishment assumes? In answering this question, Heginbotham and Lal will debate the role of India and China in the U.S. rebalancing strategy.
