The Path to a World without War

A World without War: The History, Politics and Resolution of Conflict by Sundeep Waslekar, Gurugram: HarperCollins India, 2022; pp 324, `599.

The Eurasian Economic Union and India

The Eurasian Economic Union has great potential to integrate the economies of India, Central Asian countries, the Rus­sian Federation, and China. In the present circumstances, with realigned trade flows post the Ukraine crisis, it is in India’s interest to actively participate in the de­velopment of both the
Interna­tional North–South Transport Corridor and the Northern Sea Route.

The Mirage of AUKUS

The AUKUS programme has become a fulcrum of the US’s Indo-Pacific strategy, and the choice of nuclear attack submarines in preference to aircraft carriers or any other naval platform is a clear indication of the versatility of such platforms. The viability of this programme for Australia and its relevance to India’s defence planning and procurement process are analysed.

Ukraine: From the Impasse to a Negotiated Settlement?

Ukraine, egged on by the West, continues to fight an unwinnable war with disastrous effects on its people, the armed forces, the economy, and the future of Ukrainian society. Recent statements by European leaders and growing dissatisfaction about the economic situation indicate that it may be more prudent to achieve a political settlement of this war of attrition.

India’s Arctic Policy

The Arctic policy is a nascent step forward in the articulation of India’s Arctic interests since the draft Arctic policy in 2020 and being accorded the observer status in the Arctic Council. However, the release of the policy without an accompanying plan indicates that India’s larger engagement in the Arctic is still at the formative stage.

—Bernard Brodie

Ukraine: ​The Anatomy of a Crisis

The origins of the present crisis are located in the history of Ukraine, Russia, and the Soviet Union. The decisive role of the continuous expansion of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the hegemonic designs of the United States in precipitating the crisis is analysed.

Strategic Dissonance in Afghanistan and a Way Forward

The historical background of recent events in Afghanistan is examined, and its relevance to India’s foreign and security policy is analysed. 

India’s Energy Policy

Historically, India has been an importer of its energy needs. Only the United States (us) and China consume more energy than India. In addition, it is the consumer with the quickest growth in the world, consuming 813 million tonnes of oil equivalent in 2019 (MOPNG 2021).
