Andy Kennedy


Andy Kennedy specializes in the politics and perceptions that shape China's and India’s relations with the outside world. His first book, The International Ambitions of Mao and Nehru: National Efficacy Beliefs and the Making of Foreign Policy (Cambridge, 2012), compared Chinese foreign policy under Mao Zedong with Indian foreign policy under Jawaharlal Nehru. More recently, his research has focused on issues at the intersection of economic development and national security, particularly technological innovation. His second book, The Conflicted Superpower: America’s Collaboration with China and India in Global Innovation (Columbia, 2018), explored the politics behind transnational flows of high-tech labor and capital between China, India, and the United States. His current research explores how nationalism drives and constrains the emergence of China and India as a new technology powers in the international system. He also teaches a course on the political and economic forces shaping the future of Asia, entitled "International Policymaking in the Shadow of the Future."
