India's Military Diplomacy: From Isolation to Partnership

Abstract

That India has emerged as a 'net provider of security' in the Indian Ocean and beyond is now a widely accepted proposition. The talk will assess the recent trends in India's military engagement with the great powers, regional actors and smaller neighbours against a historic legacy that had seen an expansive regional security role under the British Raj and a policy of deliberate military isolationism during the Cold War. It will address the enduring tensions between the traditional ideas of non-alignment and third world solidarity on the one hand and the new imperatives of becoming a major power with responsibilities for the protecting weaker states, promoting regional order and securing global commons.
