India’s Foreign Policy

Dhruva Jaishankar | Thu, 18 December 2014

This podcast is performed by Dhruva Jaishankar. India has had several stages to its foreign policy since its independence. This included active international engagements in the 1950s, isolations and regional rivalries in the 1960s, closer cooperation with the Soviet Union in the 1970s, and gradually closer relations with the United States beginning in the late 1990s. Today, India’s foreign policy can be characterized primarily by a quest for security, for economic development, and for autonomy of action. India also seeks greater influence in multilateral forums, whether the United Nations, BRICS, or G20. The three most important bilateral relationships are with the United States, Pakistan, and China. Relations with important smaller actors (Singapore, Israel, and South Korea), complex ties in the Middle East (with Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Israel), and major secondary powers (Japan, Europe, Australia, Brazil, Russia). New trends are radically changing India’s international engagements. New priorities include sourcing foreign direct investment and utilizing India’s large and wealthy diaspora. This also means that new actors - including businesses, NGOs, and the media - are influencing foreign policy in novel ways.

China and Emerging Economies

Andrew Small | Mon, 01 December 2014

This podcast is performed by Andrew Small. This podcast addresses a series of macro-trends the Chinese economy has been experiencing these past years. It also presents China’s relationship to various emerging markets, and more broadly, the country’s relationship to the global economy as it is shifting at the moment. This brief identifies major developments that stand from China’s internal economic development as it affects some important trends from the global economy, and their impact on emerging markets. It hence explores how the adopted political strategy fits together with broader macroeconomic developments.
