Earlier this month, India reported that twenty members of its armed forces were killed in fighting with Chinese forces along a disputed border in the Himalayas. Tension is, therefore, growing between the two most populous nations and emotions are running high. Doug Becker speaks with Ritu Mathur about the recent de-escalation of relations between China and India.
Ritu Mathur is an Assistant Professor in Political Science at the University of Texas, San Antonio. She is an expert in critical security studies and is the author of Civilizational Discourses in Weapons Control.
