27.01.2017
Pankaj Kumar Jha, Research Director at the Indian Council of World Affairs, talks about the post-Cold War period and whether it can truly be declared over, the future of trade and investment treaties such as the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) and why it may be too early to call the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) doomed.

Jha also talks about the more complex details of India's decision to join the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, and what goals it can accomplish by accessing Central Asia, and eventually Europe. Finally, Jha explains why India remains reluctant to join the RCEP, and what important changes need to take place in the treaty regarding investment and trade in services.
