    Modi's World
    C. Raja Mohan April 11, 2014 Eurasia Review

    Foreign policy is rarely central to elections anywhere in the world. It is no surprise, then, that the foreign policy sections in the manifestos put out by some Indian parties seem an afterthought.

    Situation Report: Pakistan
    Frederic Grare April 9, 2014 Tony Blair Faith Foundation

    Religious conflict has been part of Pakistan since its inception. While the state can be said to be a victim of its own policies, it does not face any existential threat.

    The Rural/Urban Divide Dies Out
    Milan Vaishnav, Neelanjan Sircar April 3, 2014 Financial Times

    Even if the rural/urban divide did once provide an accurate description of the country, there is good reason to doubt it as India heads to the polls in 2014.

    Hold On To Interest Rates

    Will the Indian Ballot Solve the Country’s Economic Problems?
    Petr Topychkanov April 18, 2014

    The Indian parliamentary election is in full swing. The name of the future prime minister and the party he will represent are not all that important. It is far more important to the voters that the new government be efficient and professional.

    India The Abstainer
    Petr Topychkanov April 8, 2014

    The challenges New Delhi faces inside the country and along its borders do not allow it to fully support the Russian annexation of Crimea, since this would create a precedent that can be used against India’s own territorial integrity. However, India could not denounce Russia either, because it acted similarly four decades ago.

    Ukrainian Crisis: Voices from India
    Petr Topychkanov February 28, 2014

    The voices from India in world discussions about Ukraine are of particular importance due to long tradition of non-alignment policy of this country and its good relations with both USSR/Russia and the West.

    War With Multiple Enemies in Afghanistan
    Petr Topychkanov February 21, 2014

    Today, many countries have to fight against terrorist organizations, which have roots in the Soviet war in Afghanistan. However, this lesson is still unlearned: in Syria, fighters under Islamic flags have gained support of several countries, but this support will recoil upon the supporters’ own heads.

    Afghanistan, 25 Years After
    Dmitri Trenin February 17, 2014

    Twenty-five years after the Soviet pullout from Afghanistan, the Russians watch the U.S.-led coalition withdraws from this country and worry about regional stability, security, and drugs production and trade. To deal effectively with these concerns, Russia should focus not so much on Afghanistan as on its Central Asian neighbors.

    Indian Flag in Sochi
    Petr Topychkanov February 14, 2014

    The International Olympic Committee has lifted the suspension of the Indian Olympic team. The presence of the Indian athletes in the Olympics is important because Sochi is the place where even rivaling states, such as India and Pakistan, have to fairly and peacefully participate in the tournaments.

    The Miserable State of European Defense
    Judy Dempsey February 1, 2014

    Germany’s defense minister has called for greater European defense capabilities—a laudable ambition, but the reality is persistently low defense spending across Europe.

    Slump in South Asia?
    Petr Topychkanov January 31, 2014

    The slump of interest in South Asia in the West is a positive development, because it makes clearer which countries are the real partners of Afghanistan, India, and Pakistan. Also, if left to themselves these three countries will get a chance to build their relations without external pressure.

    Munich Security Conference Is Indivisible from Asia-Pacific
    Akio Kawato January 31, 2014

    The recent developments in Asia-Pacific indicate a necessity to start serious talks for “stock-taking” of the military forces in the region. Also, Russia’s active involvement in regional security affairs is needed.
