Shades of Grey: India, the US, and the Quad
May 22, 2023
In the latest issue of India in Transition, Aditi Malhora (Canadian Army Journal) argues that India-US bilateral relations are shaped by the combination of converging and diverging interests that holds significance for the direction of the Quad.
This article is the second in a four-part IiT series focused on India in the Quad, the geopolitical grouping that also includes Japan, Australia, and the US, whose leaders met at the annual Quad Summit in Hiroshima in May 2023. As India's perception of the China challenge continues to evolve, its approach toward the Quad—which has expanded in ambition and activity since the COVID-19 crisis, the 2020 Indo-China clash in Ladakh, and amid growing Sino-US tensions—calls for additional scholarly scrutiny. The first piece, by Kate Sullivan de Estrada, looked at India's leveraging of a "low-resolution" liberal order in the Indo-Pacific.
