This article is a first cut at exploring the connection between the bilateral SinoIndian relationship and China's interaction with, and adaption to, global structures. It surveys Sino-Indian relations, documenting the reversal of the co-operative trend that had prevailed for three decades. It argues that the deterioration of relations, in the context of an unresolved territorial dispute and an intensifying classical security dilemma, raises the probability of armed conflict, a militarized dispute, or a crisis. It thereby risks undermining Beijing's hitherto successful grand strategy of reassurance. It further contends that Sino-Indian enmity, aside from complicating bilateral co-operation, also hinders the formation and sustenance of institutions and regimes.
