India and the UN Security Council

An Ambiguous Tale

During India's last stint on the United Nations Security Council in 2011-12, it was unable to pursue the originally charted strategy of demonstrating responsible diplomacy in the leagues of the great powers while also making the body a more legitimate and representative organisation. Delving into India's efforts to achieve its objectives, this paper discusses contemporary constraints on the country's ability to exercise greater influence at the UN. It also sketches what an alternative Indian policy at the UN could look like.

The authors are grateful to Zack Cooper and Timo Thoms for comments on an earlier draft, as well as the various experts quoted from correspondence for taking the time to share their insights.
