A “Chaupal” is a central meeting place in Indian villages, where the old and the young get together every evening to discuss the happenings of the day, the challenges facing the community, possible solutions, and the role that each member of the community can play in dealing with these challenges.
Our Annual “Foreign Policy Chaupal” is envisioned as a platform for the strategic community in New Delhi to participate in conversations on the future of Indian Foreign and National Security policy.
The 2020 edition hosted conversations on:
- India's New Foreign Policy
- Indian Military's Response to Contemporary Security Challenges
- India's Role in Regional Prosperity
