India’s Place in the World

In an increasingly connected world, the nation-state is less sovereign today that it was ever before. Some of the most consequential issues today – climate change, terrorism, international trade, or global violations of human rights – cannot be dealt by any country in isolation. Under this theme, we work on how India can engage deeply with the rest of the world to protect its interests and to promote global peace and security. We focus especially on these three sub-themes:

  • China, particularly on trade and investment
  • International organisations – the UN & its organs, the WTO and the UNFCC & GCF
  • Indian diaspora and soft-power
