About the lecture: In this presentation, James Di Pane will explore the possible and likely courses that India’s naval strategy could follow as it seeks to expand its influence. Using the thinking of strategists Julian S. Corbett and A. T. Mahan as a foundation, Indian culture, geography, and current strategic outlook will be used to show the possible advantages and disadvantages India will face with naval development. In addition, U.S. diplomatic and military options will be discussed that aim to build and ensure a cooperative naval relationship with India, as well as the importance of that relationship for regional and global security.
