Policy Study

24/10/2017

The summer months bring a certain lull and calm into Indian domestic politics. Because of this, but also as a result of the long-standing confrontation of Indian and Chinese troops in Bhutan, we continue with our focus on the India-China relations and India’s position vis-à-vis the Chinese OBOR initiative. The visit of the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in India features prominently and has to be seen also in the wider context of the geostrategic implications of the tense bilateral relations between India and China.

Part I  India – Domestic developments

  •   Yashwant Sinha hits at the Modi – government
  •   Colin Gonsalves: Recipient of The Right to Livelihood Award, 2017

Part II  India – Foreign Policy Developments

  •     The ‘Road’ to Redefining Asia? Examining the Geopolitical Implications of China’s ‘One Belt One Road’ Initiative
  •   The India-Japan Annual Summit in Gujarat
  •   BRICS 2019 in China

Part III South Asia                      

·     Modi in Myanmar

Part IV Press Articles on major domestic and foreign policy issues

As always, a number of complementary articles provide the reader with a much wider and deeper understanding of the politics in India, South Asia and across the wider region, through an Indian-centred perspective.
