    International Peace & Security

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) is a bipartisan, nonprofit organization headquartered in Washington, DC. This project informs U.S. policy vis-à-vis India in light of various developments that bear on bilateral ties: the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, America's "rebalance" to Asia and relations with Pakistan, and the administration of Indian Prime Minister Modi. Through research and workshops, the study aims to establish a common basis of understanding between Washington and Delhi of the obstacles and opportunities in bilateral ties and identify concrete steps that could be taken in each capital to advance bilateral ties—especially important given U.S. interests in South and East Asia, and the expanding role India plays in the region.
