About the Series

As part of the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, a special celebration organised by the Government of India to commemorate the 75th year of India’s Independence, the Centre for Policy Research (CPR) has launched a flagship lecture series titled, ‘India and the World’. The series will bring together distinguished speakers who have had a long and deep engagement with the country to understand their perspectives on India’s global relationships and how the world understands and engages with India – our history, our democracy, our economy and our society. This series will seek to bring a global perspective into dialogue with India with the objective of celebrating the country, its role in global governance and articulating a pathway in the new, shifting geopolitical landscape.
