This module is designed to provide an analysis of the emergence of India within the international system. Focusing upon the factors integral to such a phenomenon (from both theoretical and historical perspectives), students will build up a comprehensive understanding of the state's past, contemporary and future significance. After a historical overview, the module will evaluate key factors concerning how India conducts and formulates its foreign policy (from strategic and economic factors, to its regional and multilateral interactions). This analysis will then lead to a comprehensive evaluation of India's future challenges as an emergent Asian and global power in the twenty-first century.
