Overview

India is poised to join the major nations of the world as one of the next superpowers in the multi-polar, 21st-century world. At the same time, it still faces significant domestic problems such as widespread poverty and public health issues, and faces considerable security threats posed by China and Pakistan.

Author Amit Gupta, PhD, an esteemed scholar and expert on foreign policy and weapons proliferation in South Asia, argues that India's quest to attain a superpower status will depend on how it develops its relationships with the other leading nations. Another determining factor for India's success lies in its ability to create a more advantageous security environment in the immediate Indian Ocean region. Global Security Watch—India tackles complex topics such as future Indian foreign and security policy options and the corresponding implications for U.S. policy, how the India–China relationship affects relations among other Asian countries, and the capabilities of the Indian military-industrial complex.
