The Hyderabad Roundtable
India’s National Interest: Towards Shared Visions

Join us to be part of a community of informed and influential individuals committed to transforming India for the better.

The Takshashila Roundtable conclave programme aims to create a shared understanding of India’s national interests that can serve as the intellectual bases for public policy. The programme will bring high-quality, cutting-edge discussions on strategic affairs, national security and governance to cities and towns across India, creating a platform for dynamic individuals to connect with each other and to the wider policy-making circles.

The Hyderabad Roundtable will have two parts. In the first segment, it will have focussed discussion sessions on emerging policy issues: from geopolitics to geoeconomics, from national security to social capital. Takshashila Fellows will be present to share their research and insights. The second segment moves beyond discussion: participants will brainstorm, develop and commit to their own personal action plans on how they will engage in public affairs in the year ahead.

You are invited to plug in.

Session 1: Liberalism, nationalism, power & policy
Session 2: The emerging geopolitical environment
