India is commonly flattered in public discourse as an "emerging power," but its leadership and influence in matters of security and trade are often limited and reactive within South Asia and neighboring regions. This paper posits that India's elite have failed to re-conceptualize creatively the once coherent security and economic space inherited from the British in 1947 and, thus India permits the strategic space within which it operates to be continuously redefined by external actors (e.g. Af-Pak, Indo-Pacific, ASEAN+6). India is a state which can act decisively and creatively to counter security threats and exploit economic opportunities, hence its difficulty in shaping its broader strategic environment requires critical analysis.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
