Radio Documentary
India Rising (Now Available)
Produced by the Stanley Foundation with KQED Public Radio and KUT Austin

India Rising logo
The Mumbai attacks were a well-coordinated strike on India's economy, its internationalism, its pluralism, its openness.

Now this nuclear-armed nation, the world's biggest democracy, faces a historic challenge—one that will test its mettle and shape its role on the world stage.

Released in March 2009, veteran public radio journalist David Brown takes listeners on a journey around this potential superpower: "India Rising."

"India Rising"—produced by Simon Marks, Kristin McHugh, and Keith Porter—is a Stanley Foundation production in association with KQED Public Radio and KUT Austin.

The full program is available as an mp3 file here. A complete transcript is available here. Individual program segments are also available as MP3 files via the following links:

More on India's role in the changing global order is available here.

Watch or listen to a promotional preview of "India Rising." 

For radio stations, the full program along with promotional materials are now available on PRX.

    Courier Courier
    The Summer 2018 edition of Courier considers the future of multilateralism. Is it a tool for applying a nation’s collective intellect to the world’s greatest challenges? Or is it an affront to state sovereignty and an indication of political ineptitude?

    Also in this issue, we explore the UN approach to sustaining peace and the Security Council’s role in climate policy; how Cape Town, South Africa is modeling climate action at the local level; and the importance of educating youth on the potential of global citizenship.
