The India-China border dispute covers the 3,488-km-long Line of Actual Control. China claims Arunachal Pradesh as part of southern Tibet while India contests it. Aksai Chin is a vast area in Ladakh which is currently under Chinese occupation.

Chinese infringements into the Aksai Chin region are not random, independent events but are part of a strategically planned and coordinated “expansionist strategy” to gain permanent control of the disputed border area, according to a study on Chinese border incursions into India by a team of international experts. The study ‘Rising tension in the Himalayas: a Geospatial Analysis of Chinese Border Incursions into India' by Northwestern University, Technical University of Delft in the Netherlands and the Netherlands Defence Academy presented a geospatial analysis of the incursions, using an original dataset that covers the past 15 years.

“We find that the conflict can be separated into two independent conflicts, west and east, centered around the major contested areas of Aksai Chin and Arunachal Pradesh. Building on insights from game theory, we conclude that the Chinese incursions in the west are strategically planned and aim for a permanent control, or at least a clearer status quo of the contested areas,” the study released on Thursday said.

What Does The Study Say?​

For the study, the team defined an ‘incursion' as any movement of Chinese troops across the border — by foot or in vehicles — into areas that are internationally accepted as India's territory. Then, they plotted each location on a map, identifying 13 hotspots where incursions happen most frequently. In the 15-year dataset, the researchers noted an average of 7.8 incursions per year even though the Indian government's estimates are much higher.

The India-China Border Dispute​

The India-China border dispute covers the 3,488-km-long Line of Actual Control. China claims Arunachal Pradesh as part of southern Tibet while India contests it. Aksai Chin is a vast area in Ladakh which is currently under Chinese occupation. According to Indian government data in 2019, the Chinese Army transgressed into Indian territory 1,025 times between 2016 and 2018.

Then Minister of State for Defence Shripad Naik told the Lok Sabha in November 2019 that the number of transgressions by the Chinese Army in 2016 was 273 which rose to 426 in 2017. The number of such cases reported in 2018 was 326.

The study's authors are Jan-Tino Brethouwer and Robbert Fokkink of the Technical University of Delft, Delft Institute of Applied Mathematics in Netherlands, Kevin Greene of Princeton University's School of Public and International Affairs, Roy Lindelauf of Netherlands Defence Academy, Faculty of Military Sciences in Breda, Netherlands, Caroline Tornquist of Dartmouth College's Department of Computer Science and V.S. Subrahmanian of Northwestern University's Department of Computer Science and Buffett Institute for Global Affairs in Evanston, US.

'Chinese incursions across India strategically planned'​

A press release from Northwestern said that the authors assembled a new dataset, compiling information about Chinese incursions into India from 2006 to 2020 and used game theory and statistical methods to analyse the data. The researchers found that conflicts can be separated into two distinct sectors: west/middle (the Aksai Chin region) and east (the Arunachal Pradesh region). “Chinese incursions across India's west and central borders are not independent, random incidents that happen by mistake,” the release said.

“While the researchers learned that the number of incursions are generally increasing over time, they concluded that conflicts in the east and middle sectors are part of a coordinated expansionist strategy,” it said.

Subrahmanian, the study's senior author and the Walter P. Murphy Professor of Computer Science at Northwestern's McCormick School of Engineering and a Buffett Faculty Fellow at Northwestern's Buffett Institute for Global Affairs, said that by studying the number of incursions that occurred in the west and middle sectors over time, “it became obvious, statistically, that these incursions are not random. The probability of randomness is very low, which suggests to us that it's a coordinated effort.

“When we looked at the eastern sector, however, there is much weaker evidence for coordination. Settling border disputes in specific areas could be an important first step in a step-by-step resolution of the entire conflict,” Subrahmanian said.

“Knowing there are more incursions in the western sector is not a surprise,” Subrahmanian said. “Aksai Chin is a strategic area that China wants to develop, so it's very critical to them. It's a vital passageway between China and the Chinese autonomous regions of Tibet and Xinjiang.” The study, which notes the June 2020 Galwan clash that killed 20 Indian soldiers and an “unknown number of Chinese soldiers”, said that reports of Chinese incursions into Indian territory are now a frequent occurrence.

Pakistan and China are India's first two fronts to fight, Bangladesh will be added soon as a third front.

The India-friendly house of cards called Hasina's regime is about to come crashing down.

The Chinese would've taken the seven sisters a long time ago, but it really isn't worth the bother for them strategically.

Congratulations to our expert "Robbert Fokkink" for this study and his very memorable name....

Reminds one of a "The Onion" story....

China has a tough competition in the pacific with strong US presence. Indian border is one area where they can play around and project their power.
Its like beating a rat to scare the elephant.

But oddly despite the obvious advantage China let their South Asian proxy get torn into back in two the day. Guess there is price for even projecting their power.

Go pick a fight with Burma or something if you must.
Myanmar recently used their airspace unchallenged, knowing well how much of a geo-political punchbag BD is
Myanmar uses Bangladesh airspace to attack AA by helicopters
Myanmar knows when a submissive prey like BD is in sight
Looks like operation searchlight v2 will be done by Myanmar Junta

Bangladesh should only concentrate on improving the design of the underwears it’s make for export.

Thank you for demonstrating your andh-bhakt ignorance to the whole world.
My pleasure and ironic who's talking about "ignorance" here
I've seen your comments in multiple threads 99% of them are anti India and more than half of them don't even make sense like the current one.

Not really needed because even with our internal turmoil, Pakistan easily dominated and outright humiliates india militarily....as witnessed by everyone quite recently :lol:

Imagine being so cucked that a 7x smaller foe holds your claimed territory and regularly humiliates you militarily, and you cant do NOTHING about it. China isn't even in the picture...thats not a competition but just one sided arse-shafting :cry:

You will need brain cells to understand my posts.

Out of your league.

I agree 100% , You nailed it, I expect Nepal to join as well.

The Chinese will keep doing this, even if it leads to all out war.
It's all planned, They expect to go to war with India in the next few years.
