ICWA in collaboration with IPCS

By invitation only

The historic Asian Relations Conference took place in New Delhi in March-April 1947. Drawing inspiration from the vision of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, it brought together Asian leaders under a common platform to study common concerns, to focus attention on social, economic and cultural problems of the different countries and to foster mutual contact and mutual understanding.

The fifth ICWA-IPCS Asian Relations Conference focuses on the theme ‘Transitions and Interdependence: India and its Neighbours’. The years 2013 and 2014 appear to be ‘years of hope’ for South Asia, as many countries in the region have held successful elections in 2013, while others will go to polls in 2014. India, as an important stakeholder in the region is keenly observing the on-going transitions in its neighbourhood.

Across South Asia, from Pakistan having a historical democratic transition of government, the elections in Bangladesh, Myanmar embracing democratic transition and Sri Lanka conducting provincial elections, these developments in the region have an influence on India’s foreign policy and moulds its domestic politics and vice-versa. India, as am important stakeholder in the region is keenly observing the on-going transitions in its neighbourhood. In this context, the conference facilitated a debate on the issue of transitions in India and its neighbouring countries and its implications for regional security, stability and development.
