Policy Study

03/08/2017

The July 2017 Dossier highlights a range of domestic and foreign policy developments in India as well as in the wider region. These include an analysis of the current dramatic political turn-around in Bihar, the difficulties the opposition will be facing in the 2019 elections, a possible change in the role of Rahul Gandhi and the terrorist attack on the Amarnath Yatra. The dossier also focuses on the strategic partnership, that was signed between India and Israel during Modi’s first ever visit to Tel Aviv, and the upcoming visit of external affairs minister Swaraj to Nepal for a BIMSTEC meeting.
