ORF, in collaboration with Jadavpur University, is hosting a Think20 (T20) Youth Engagement side event on the Geopolitics of Multilateralism. The event will bring together scholars and graduate and post-graduate students from the Departments of International Relations and Economics at the University and also those interested from a few other Universities in the city. The event is designed to acquaint students with the workings of the G20 as well as the reach, impact, and significance of the T20 platform as an ‘Ideas Bank’ of the G20. In addition to geopolitical concerns, the discussion will also highlight Regional Trade Agreements and India's growth story and thus, encourage the opportunity for a cross-disciplinary conversation on key geopolitical and geoeconomic aspects of India’s foreign policy outreach.Agenda
