Aligning Regional Interests: India and Europe in the Indian Ocean and the Middle East


The Foundation for European Progressive Studies and Carnegie India organised a conference on advancing the European Union-India relationship and initiating a dialogue on the strategic partnership to formulate specific and potentially common interests. The primary objective of this conference was to sustain an exchange of ideas between leading experts from Europe and India resulting in policy recommendations and elements of a political dialogue. The conference brought together leading scholars, practitioners and political leaders to discuss the current turbulence in the Middle East, security challenges in the Indian Ocean and prospects for regional cooperation.
