Geopolitics & Empire
Published 3 months ago |
Dr. Jagganath Panda discusses the key drivers of geopolitics and power politics between India, Pakistan, and China in the Indo-Pacific. He comments on PM Modi's "India First" policies, Japan’s strategy, and the promises of the Quad or Quad Plus, which some have referred to as an Asian NATO. He covers Chinese ‘influence operations’, the threat of China's revisionist policies, and gives his take on how successful Belt & Road has been and whether the West’s ‘Blue Dot Network’ or ‘B3W’ is a viable competitor. Finally, he gives his thoughts on how bumpy the New Cold War with China might get militarily over the next decade.
