India Ideas Conference 2019

Crowds around the India Gate at sunset

The India Initiative launched the India Ideas Conference in 2017 as a platform to convene scholars, practitioners, diplomats, and thought leaders for high-level dialogue on key issues related to India. On April 12, 2019, the initiative will host the third annual India Ideas Conference.

Given India's rising prominence in the global economy, democratic culture, and rapidly growing population, India's role in key global affairs is of great significance. Additionally, in a country with over 20 major languages, the largest film industry in the world, and a large diaspora population, India's sociocultural impact is remarkable. The 2019 Ideas Conference will bring together thought leaders across industries ranging from arts and fashion to politics and sustainable business practices, and dissect these themes in a collaborative, solutions-oriented manner.
