India in a multi-polar world

As a democracy in the developing world and with its breathtaking economic growth, India has emerged as a key player on the international arena. At the same time, many questions surround India's rise and there is a level of uncertainty about the impact this will have on the international system.

This paper explores India's positions on three critical global challenges: economic globalisation, resource security and transnational terrorism. In each of these policy areas, it finds that while India challenges certain elements of the international status quo, its rise is not likely to be disruptive for the existing international system as a whole. On the contrary, India can play a unique and constructive role in an increasingly complex and plural international order.
