Alyssa Ayres, Senior Fellow for India, Pakistan & South Asia, Council on Foreign Relations

Join us for a private breakfast roundtable with Alyssa Ayres, Senior Fellow for India, Pakistan & South Asia, Council on Foreign Relations as she discusses India's path to becoming a global power.

The discussion will draw upon Ayres's latest book, Our Time Has Come: How India Is Making Its Place In The World, published in January by Oxford University Press. In an effort to help make sense of India's global rise, Ayres analyzes how the dichotomy between India's inward-focused past and its ongoing global integration is shaping its trajectory - and how the United States should adjust. Ayres' is one of the foremost U.S. experts and thinkers on South Asia. She served in the Obama administration as deputy assistant Secretary of State for South Asia from 2010 to 2013, prior to which she was founding director of the India and South Asia practice at McLarty Associates, a Washington-based international strategic advisory firm. She has experience across the non-profit, government, and private sectors, and has carried out research on both India and Pakistan.

This programme is part of Asia Society India Centre's BASIC (Breakfast at Asia Society India Centre) series, which brings eminent speakers from the fields of Asian business, arts, culture and policy to Asia Society Members and Patrons, and provides a senior level platform for discussion on issues of current interest affecting Asia and the world.
