Counter-Terrorism in South Asia

The ORF-Heritage Foundation Counter-Terrorism Dialogue, that took place in New Delhi on July 20-21, 2010, brought together top Indian experts led by Ambassador M. Rasgotra, President, ORF Centre for International Relations and a distinguished American delegation led by The Heritage Foundation’s Vice President for Foreign and Defence Policy Studies, Dr. Kim Holmes, to exchange ideas for expanding US-India counter-terrorism cooperation.

The main themes of the conference included the differing policy approaches of Washington and New Delhi in grappling with terrorist threats; growing alliances among insurgent groups, criminal networks, and terrorists; lessons learned from the Obama Administration’s Afghanistan-Pakistan policies in its first eighteen months in office; influence of radicalism in the institutional structures and armed forces in the region; and nuclear and non-nuclear threats to India and the US from transnational terrorist groups.
