Round Table Discussion on Rethinking Border and Security, India and China
by Lily Ling, New School, New York
(jointly organised by India-China Institute, The New School, The Fulbright Commission, and Social Science Baha)
13 August, 2010, Kathmandu
Lily Ling (PhD, MIT), Associate Professor in the Graduate Programme in International Affairs (GPIA) at The New School and a Faculty Fellow at the India-China Institute (2008-2010), led a discussion where she briefly introduced her work on a collaborative project involving the India-China Institute fellows that is being organised in an edited volume entitled ‘RETHINKING BORDERS AND SECURITY, INDIA AND CHINA: New Connections for Ancient Geographies’. The roundtable discussion sought to bring together scholars and experts in Nepal in order to bring alternative perspectives of understanding borders in the larger Himalayan region that will both develop livelihoods as well as maintain security of those who live on either side as well as on the land where state lines are drawn.
