Vindu Mai Chotani ?(Research Student, Department of Law and Politics, University of Tokyo)
'India - Japan Cooperation in the Bay of Bengal: Implications for the broader Region'

Abstract: Given its rising importance, the Bay of Bengal has been witnessing a scramble amongst major powers such as India, China, Japan, the U.S., and Russia, in deepening economic and strategic ties, bilateral relationships, and connectivity and infrastructural projects. India, currently anxious about growing Chinese forays in the region and beyond, can and has been benefiting greatly by cooperating with Japan, who for its part has been competitively investing and deepening ties here. Along these lines, this presentation argues that the converging trajectory of the India and Japan partnership in the Bay of Bengal, has not only the ability to create balance that would aide in the Bay’s peaceful development and rise, but further benefits will be accrued that extend into the broader Indo-Pacific region.

18:10 - 18:50
Yaqoob Khan Bangash (Director, Centre for Governance and Policy, IT University of the Punjab, Pakistan)
'Between a Rock and a Hard Place: Pakistan's Policy Options'

Abstract: 'Since its inception Pakistan has been in a volatile state. The country almost immediately began a costly war with India, had tense relations with Afghanistan, and played a major part in the Cold War as an ally of the United States and the West. After more than 70 years of existence, Pakistan's issues remain deep, complicated and dire. It is at the centre of the global War on Terror, has a terrorism and extremism problem itself, and its impoverished and exploding population is creating its own fissures. This talk will contextualise Pakistan in the world in the 21st century. The talk will try to make sense of Pakistan's foreign policy options by assessing its domestic reality and place it within the context of global power politics.?

Title: "Embedded Meanings and Relations: Reckoning Swaminarayan Akshardham Temple Complexes Through Material and Devotional Tracings"

Presentation Summery:
The striking visibility and monumental dimensions of Swaminarayan Akshardham temple complexes have provoked curiosity and raised questions about the community responsible for their construction. Who has constructed the Akshardham temple complexes in India; what connections are there between Akshardham, religious nationalism, and the globalisation of Hinduism; why does Akshardham appear to support the branding and commodification of religion? These questions, asked by analysts of Akshardham, suggest that knowledge about the temple complex builders and their motivations can be acquired by probing the overlapping arenas of religion, politics, migration, and economic liberalisation in modern India. While not discounting the historical and political economic contexts out of which the Akshardham complexes emerge, this presentation explicitly focuses on the materiality of the Swaminarayan Akshardham temple complexes: what do these architectural and spatial sites accomplish? As built objects, the temple complexes engender, provoke, and nurture responses; they create relationships, initiate self-transformations, and offer avenues by which their publics, including their builders and Swaminarayan followers, interpret the spaces of their everyday lives. By looking more closely at what Akshardham accomplishes, it is possible to trace the links between the material and relational, between objects and peoples, and between the builders of Akshardham and their publics. Tracing these connections, the Swaminarayan Akshardham complexes are sources of discursive assemblages, no less significant for their devotional importance as they are spaces that support the materialisation of relationships, power, and sentiments. As with the story of any large-scale architectural project, understanding the Akshardham temple complexes rests on connecting multiple discourses and exploring how these relations are enmeshed in materialities that are neither static nor homogeneous.
