India's recent development has underscored its role as a crucial regional power and an important economic and political actor. Yet the nation faces a variety of threats to its internal stability that hold the potential to hinder continued progress. As engagement between the United States and India has increased in recent years, both nations have begun to explore homeland security cooperation as an opportunity to help meet their shared security challenges. In a new report titled "U.S.-India Homeland Security Cooperation: Building a Lasting Partnership via Transportation Sector Security," CSIS examines how this partnership can be further solidified, particularly through cooperation on issues of transportation security. Please join CSIS on Friday, August 2 for an on-the-record event to mark the release of this report and discuss the future of U.S.-India homeland security cooperation.
