Thanks to an invitation from the Observer Research Foundation, I was able to join this year’s Raisina Dialogue from January 7-11 in (New) Delhi, India where we spent many, many hours (think of an official 9am-10.30pm programme) discussing geopolitical power dynamics and shifts in the current world order.
It wasn’t just a packed programme, it also provided me with some new perspectives and plenty of delegates challenging my own assumptions and worldviews. And while there were several discussions around cybersecurity, internet governance, and emerging technologies; the one discussion that left a lasting impression and had us up in debate for hours after hours was the one dedicated to the impact of #metoo and feminism more broadly across different regions: It’s a long way to equality. Let’s never give up!
