About our speaker:
Anand A. Yang, born in India to Chinese parents, grew up and attended school in New Delhi and Mexico City. He is currently a Professor of International Studies and History at the UW and was Director of the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies from 2002 to 2010.

Dr. Yan received his BA from Swarthmore College and his PhD in History from the University of Virginia.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's recent comments about closer ties to India further complicate the already complex India/China relationship. UW professor Dr. Anand Yang will explain how US policy, demographics, border disputes, and China's ambitious 'One Belt, One Road' vision are creating tensions and opportunities between these 21st Century nuclear powers and engines of global growth. How these are resolved will have impacts felt throughout Asia and the world. Join us Friday, Nov. 17 for a fascinating look at how the two most populous countries on the planet might get along - or not.
