International Security and Foreign Policy




In recent years, CASI has researched the India-U.S. relationship, power realignments in Asia, and the evolving role of India in a more multipolar world, as well as the implications of climate change for Indian foreign policy. In the next two years this CASI research program will focus on India’s emerging role in international organizations; and a book length project on the key ideas, belief systems and meta-narratives that have shaped India’s engagement with the outside world and its implications for Indian foreign policy in the foreseeable future.
