Tickets: $50 | Presented by Birmingham Committee on Foreign Relations


A rising India wants a seat at the table of global powers, and is ready to set its own terms on everything from defense to climate to trade. Alyssa Ayres considers how a fiercely independent India seeks its place as a leading power, and how the United States should respond.

Alyssa Ayres is senior fellow for India, Pakistan, and South Asia at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). At CFR, her work focuses on India’s role in the world and on U.S. relations with South Asia. In 2015, she served as the project director for the CFR-sponsored Independent Task Force on U.S.-India Relations, and from 2014 to 2016, as the project director for an initiative on the new geopolitics of China, India, and Pakistan. She directs the U.S. Relations with South Asia Roundtable Series, blogs regularly for Asia Unbound, and is a contributor to Forbes.com. Her book about India’s rise on the world stage, Our Time Has Come: How India is Making Its Place in the World, was published by Oxford University Press in January 2018.
