The Quad forum is an initiative of Global Policy Insights, a centrist policy institute, aimed at fostering dialogue and understanding around the Quad grouping of nations comprising of the United States, India, Japan and Australia. The “Quad Forum” will seek to answer pertinent questions about the Quad grouping such as the strategic relevance of Quad in the ongoing great power struggle between the United States and China as well as the future of Quad and its possible manifestations in the area of trade, diplomacy, culture and collective security.

What will the Quad Forum Do?

The forum will engage with eminent experts in the areas of diplomacy, trade, international relations and politics with the aim to add to the existing body of knowledge around the “Quad” through organizing discussion forums, speaker series, articles as well as publication of white papers. This with the aim of both informing as well as shaping the discussion around the “Quad.”
