ICS-KAS Conversation | Ensuring Deterrence along the India-China LAC: The Way Ahead | 7 April @ 3 PM IST | Zoom Webinar

07 Apr 2021
Lt. Gen. DS Hooda (Retd.) , Lt. Gen. Praveen Bakshi (Retd.) , Air Marshal Anil Khosla (Retd.)
Time: 3:00 PM

The events of 2020 mark a watershed moment for Sino-Indian relations, with India reevaluating its strategic posture vis-à-vis China. Reorienting the country's military posture remains a crucial aspect of deterring future Chinese aggression along the border. Though the past few decades have seen various CBMs and border agreements holding the peace along the Line of Actual Control (LAC), events like the Galwan clash and Op Snow Leopard reflect the inadequacy of past agreements, and the urgent need to bolster India's conventional deterrence against China's military.

What are the immediate doctrinal changes and modernisation India's military should take to counter the continental threat from China? What aspects of China's military should worry India's security establishment the most? Will the LAC now be an 'active' border, as the Line of Control is with Pakistan? How can India rebuild CBMs and ensure credible deterrence against China? How should the Army and Air Force work together to ensure a military edge along the LAC? These themes, and other issues will be discussed in this webinar.
