The relationship between the United States and India will define freedom, security and prosperity in the twenty-first century. The goal of the Huntington Program on Strengthening US-India Relations at Hoover is to generate, identify, and advance policy-relevant scholarship and connections that will deepen the relationship between the world’s oldest democracy and the world’s largest democracy.

The US-India Program at Hoover will support opportunities for shared economic development and activity; areas and ideas of collaboration on geostrategic priorities, and the protection of democracy and individual rights that underpin a free and open society. The Program will further knowledge, cooperation and a closer relationship between the two countries through several lines of effort:

  • Rigorous, high-impact research that will inform policymaking and promote closer relations between governments, scholars, the private sectors, and civil society in the US and India
  • Meetings that convene a diverse set of scholars and policy experts not only from within the Hoover Institution and the Stanford University community, but from around the world
  • Creation of a network of scholars, opinion leaders, and policymakers who seek a stronger US-India relationship through our research platform and our global partnerships
