SHAPING A NEW STRATEGIC CULTURE FOR INDIA

International Relations Conference – 2018,  Pune is taking place when important challenges for India’s interests have emerged that demand a fresh look not just at its foreign policy options but also in fact, at its strategic culture itself, which needs to be, replaced by one address the following questions:

  • What are India’s diverse strengths and capabilities?
  • What are the areas where domestic capacities need to be augmented? And, what policies need to be adopted to achieve them?
  • What are the desired outcomes for India in different regional spaces of importance to its strategic interests?
  • What approaches should be adopted to achieve those desired outcomes?
  • What regional and global engagements/ arrangements should India pursue to become more effective in the pursuit of its interests in respect of: (a) Pakistan, (b) China, and (c) West Asia
  • What initiatives can India develop to reduce competitive scenarios in the Indian Ocean region?
  • Does India need to shape and pursue new approaches to its ties with its immediate neighbours? If so, what should be the content and style of these approaches?
  • What should be the substance of India’s ties with (a) the US and (b) Russia? What policies should be pursued to obtain optimal results

International Relations Conference – 2018 will address these and related questions over two days, with presentations by eminent practitioners and academics, followed by robust discussions involving peers and students of international studies and other faculties from schools in Pune and other parts of India. The results of these interactions will yield a publication that will provide new approaches to contemporary challenges and will contribute to the shaping of a new strategic culture in India that, it is hoped, will be the bedrock of India’s foreign policy in coming years.
