RELEASE: CAP Welcomes Former Times of India Executive Editor Gautam Adhikari as Senior Fellow

Washington, D.C.  The Center for American Progress welcomes former Times of India Executive Editor Gautam Adhikari to CAP’s National Security and International Policy team as a Senior Fellow. He will work with other researchers and policy experts to provide expert insight into U.S.-India relations and CAP’s work with progressives around the world.

“Gautam has been a strong voice for progressive policies and values and a strong advocate of the U.S.-India relationship since the 1990s,” said CAP Vice President for National Security and International Policy Vikram Singh. “We could not be more pleased to have Gautam contributing to our India: 2020 program and our Global Progress initiative.”

Adhikari joins CAP’s India: 2020 project, an initiative focused on elevating the foreign policy debates in South Asia by looking at the short- and long-term U.S. policy priorities and analyzing the gap that exists between the current realities and hopes for the U.S.-India relationship. He is the founding editor of Mumbai’s Daily News & Analysis, or DNA, and has held several academic and public policy fellowships, including serving as a resident fellow and adjunct lecturer in public policy at the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard University, a J.B. and Maurice C. Shapiro fellow at George Washington University and senior resident fellow at the International Forum for Democratic Studies at the National Endowment for Democracy.

Adhikari has published widely in the popular and academic press. His books include The Intolerant Indian: Why We Must Rediscover a Liberal Space; India: The First 50 Years; and Conflict and Civilisation.
