Venue: Room 101, 1555 Century Avenue, NYU Shanghai
Date: Wednesday, October 25, 2017
Time: 16:30 to 18:30 CST

In 1962, a border war erupted between China and India. Fifty-five years have passed, and China, India, and the whole world have all changed profoundly. Both China and India represent the most successful examples of the ā€œemerging economiesā€ in todayā€™s world, increasingly playing huge positive roles in world affairs. Yet, the dark shadow of the war fifty-five years ago has lingered, becoming a serious barrier blocking two great nations from developing a compressive cooperative relationship based on high-level mutual trust. In the 1950s, Chinese-Indian friendship was highlighted as one of ā€œBhai-Bhai/brother-brother.ā€ Why, then, did the war in 1962 occur? Why isĀ the warā€™s negative impact still there after more than a half century? What lessons may people learn from that tragic episode of history, so as to benefit the two nations and the whole world in the 21stĀ century and beyond? These will be the themes of discussion at thisĀ roundtable.

TheĀ roundtableĀ is sponsoredĀ byĀ theĀ Center for Global Asia. and chaired byĀ Shen Zhihua (ę²ˆåæ—华),Ā Director, Institute for Studies on China and Its Neighboring Countries Regions, and Professor of History, East China Normal University andĀ Chen Jian (陈兼),Ā Distinguished Global Network Professor of History, NYU Shanghai / NYU.
