For the global good India’s developing international role

This report examines India’s evolving approach to its global role in four broad areas: development, trade and investment, security and democracy, and the environment. It assesses current thinking within India towards these global challenges and examines how policy is evolving. While India and the West frequently diverge in their approaches and Indian policy-makers focus primarily on domestic challenges, there is increasing engagement and clear scope and shared desire for better mutual coordination.
