The Cornell India Law Center presents "India and the United States: Overcoming the Hesitations of History"
Speaker: Ambassador Richard Verma
Vice Chairman and Partner at The Asia Group
US Ambassador to India (2014-2017)
The U.S.-India relationship has traveled a long distance over the last several decades. No longer estranged democracies of the Cold War era, both countries are now strategic partners that share common values and an array of interests, but much work remains to strengthen a still fragile partnership. During the inaugural lecture at the Cornell India Law Center, Ambassador Rich Verma will draw on his experience as a lawyer and a diplomat to examine how the world’s oldest and largest democracies are transforming their relationship to overcome the “hesitations of history” that have held both nations back for so long. He will take stock of the challenges that lie ahead and offer his vision for how Washington and New Delhi can work together to maintain forward momentum in U.S.-India relations.
All are welcome to attend. Please RSVP by Monday, September 23.
