DetailsGateway House - KAS Webcast on "QUAD OR SQUAD?" herunterladen
Greetings from Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, New Delhi & Gateway House, Mumbai!
A new multilateral is emerging, and it's called the Quad - the quadrilateral of democracies in the Indo-Pacific, the US., India, Japan & Australia.
Chinese assertiveness during the ongoing pandemic has accelerated the cooperation of what was a lose grouping, and intensified the desire to create a serious framework. It has already expanded its definition into the ''Quad Plus'', including countries like New Zealand, Vietnam and South Korea, with a focus on pandemic cooperation and economic revival.
It becomes imperative to examine areas of cooperation and contestation like:
- Security Cooperation - Can a new charter for the Indo-Pacific create a larger global coalition of like-minded partners for strategic cooperation and provide a stronger deterrence to Chinese military adventurism?
- Economic Cooperation - How can the Quad members build around networks to create sustainable infrastructure and economic linkages, regionally and beyond? What reforms are needed to ensure a more globalised yet less dependent economic environment?
- Technological Cooperation - Can the regional players overcome capability mismatches to democratise and develop digital technology as a common global good? How can industrialised European nations like UK, France and Germany converge to counter Chinese digital hegemony and cyber threats?
- Reformed Multilateralism - How can the Quad, which hosts the four leading global voices, become the magnet that attracts like-minded nations to converge on the new world order realities?
In order to find answers to these questions, the Gateway House, Mumbai & the India Office of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) are organising a Virtual Webcast on "QUAD OR SQUAD?" on Thursday 23rd July 2020 from 17:30-18:40 hrs (IST) on Zoom Platform.
