The Takshashila Institution hosted Swedish journalist, Bertil Lintner on 8th and 9th November 2016 at their offices in Ulsoor, Bangalore.

Bertil Lintner was invited as part of the Bangalore Fellows Programme. A former Burma correspondent of the now defunct Far Eastern Economic Review, Bertil currently works as a correspondent for Swedish daily Svenska Dagbladet and Denmark’s Politiken.

In his visit, Bertil interacted with us, drawing extensively from his experience, about the geopolitical aspects of Myanmar, North-eastern India and the nature of trade among the borders of the two countries.

The Bangalore Fellows Programme is an initiative by Takshashila which endeavours to bring the most talented scholars and intellectuals to Bangalore for public talks, private conclaves and research interactions.
