Policy Study

16/03/2016

The February 2016 Dossier highlights a range of domestic and foreign policy developments in India as well as in the wider region. These include analyses of the ongoing phenomena of student unrest in Indian universities, the potential signs of a Congress revival under Rahul Gandhi, the visit by President Hollande to India, and the tensions that erupted with the promulgation of the Nepal Constitution and how PM Oli’s visit to India was used to assuage these tensions.
