Information

AGI x AGF webinar series is an intellectual exchange platform for AsiaGlobal Fellows globally to interact with the leadership of the Asia Global Institute and the institute's network of experts on important global policy issues. All are welcome. 

Abstract

The world’s biggest coronavirus lockdown in India may save lives — but it has put the livelihood of millions of impoverished citizens and migrant workers, and India’s economy at stake. Who will pay the ultimate price? What are the lockdown’s implications on the nation’s foreign policy? What can NGOs do to support the underprivileged, while grappling with financial problems of their own?

AsiaGlobal Fellows Amit Wanchoo, Akshay Mathur and Ananth Krishnan offered on-the-ground insights at this intellectual exchange platform with Asia Global Institute Director of Policy Research Heribert Dieter.
