India – Middle Corridor

(Ayjaz Wani – Observer Research Foundation) Harsher sanctions on Russia by the West following the breakout of the Russia-Ukraine war have prompted countries to reconsider and recalibrate their global supply chains and trade routes.

Robert Oppenheimer

2 – (Samir Saran, Flavia Alves, Vera Songwe – Observer Research Foundation) Technology has long shaped the contours of geopolitical relations – parties competed to outinnovate their opponents in order to build more competitive economies, societies and militaries. Today is different. With breakthroughs in frontier technologies manifesting at rapid rates, the question is not who will capture their benefits first but how parties can work together to promote their beneficial use and limit their risks
