A month into Israel’s strikes on Gaza in retaliation for Hamas terror attacks, is the world on the brink of a bigger war with repercussions across West Asia? What are the likely off-ramps that could see a peaceful outcome now and how could the continuing violence impact the world? And, amidst growing global polarisation, what are India’s options and is there a possible role in ending the crisis at hand.

Suhasini Haidar, Diplomatic Editor of The Hindu, chronicles the history of the struggle and India’s relationship and role as it has evolved. A Q&A with the audience will follow.
