    About the speaker:
    In addition to his daytime jobs, Madhav Nalapat has been very active in informal, or Track-II, diplomacy, something New Delhi has increasingly relied on in recent years to build ties with other major powers.
    In the late-1980s, Madhav was one of the first thinkers to call for a Russia-China-India strategic alliance. In 1998 lectured at Peking and Fudan universities and in 2000 he organized the first non-official India-China conference in which serving members of the armed forces of both countries participated.
    Madhav has also been active in building India’s ties with the US and Israel and organized the first India-Israel-US Trilateral Conference at New Delhi in February 2003 and headed the Indian delegation to the second Trilateral Conference at Herzliya, Israel, a year later. This year, the third in this annual series took place in Washington.
    At a time when India has been deepening its energy and defense ties with Iran, Madhav has also lectured on Secularism at the Shahid Behesti University, in Teheran. Madhav is also a member of the Board of Governors of the Centre for Indian Renaissance, on the advisory board of the US-based “India China America Institute”, an Associate Member of the United Services Institution and a Senior Associate of the National Institute of Advanced Studies.
    There should be plenty of time for questions on the timely and increasingly important topics of India-China relations and energy security.
