In this Centre of Gravity paper, C. Raja Mohan examines the recent Sino-Indian border dispute and the implications for regional security. C. Raja Mohan explores the April-May 2013 dispute, the historical context and past efforts to address the problem by both Delhi and Beijing. Mohan also describes how the dispute illustrates key features of China's strategy and behaviour, with significant implications for all countries in the region, including Australia.
