India and global governance, a rising power and its discontents, edited by Harsh V. Pant

This volume explores India⁰́₉s role in the global governance architecture post-Cold War. It shows how, with a rise in India⁰́₉s capabilities, there is an expectation from its external interlocutors that New Delhi ought to play a larger global role. As Indian policymakers re-define their engagements in the global policy matrix, the essays in the volume analyse: India⁰́₉s role as a challenger and a stakeholder in world politics; its uneasy relationship with Western liberal democracies; and its role in shaping new structures of global governance. The volume focuses on a host of critical issues including nuclear policy, climate action politics, India⁰́₉s bid for a permanent seat at the UN Security Council, humanitarian interventions, trade governance, democracy promotion, India⁰́₉s engagement with other emerging powers in platforms such as the BRICS, the changing dynamics with its neighbours, and maritime governance. A timely reimagining of global politics, this book will be of great interest to scholars and researchers of politics and international relations, climate change, military and strategic studies, economics, and South Asian studies
