India now plays an important role on the global stage. Its political clout has increased, along with its economic and military growth. Considered a balancing power in the Asia-Pacific region, it is also seen as a democratic ally in the West, even as it challenges it on issues such as non-proliferation or global trade. India’s rise in global politics has confounded policy-makers and observers alike. However, while India is more confident of its capabilities than in the past, it remains unsure of its role in the world.
This book presents an overview of Indian foreign policy today. It looks at the range of factors shaping India’s foreign policy, from domestic politics to material capabilities, as well as India’s relations with the world and neighbouring countries. Key global issues, such as India’s role in international and regional organizations, nuclear proliferation, democracy, or climate change, are also discussed. In addition, “snapshots” focus on important issues such as the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) grouping and terrorism.
Written by an expert in the field, Indian Foreign Policy will be a key resource for scholars and students studying Indian politics, comparative international relations, Asian politics, as well as globalization.
