    Pro-Business or Pro-Consumer?
    Milan Vaishnav, Suyash Rai October 13, 2014 Live Mint

    Modi has repeatedly stated that government should not be in the business of business, but when policy issues demand difficult trade-offs, will the Indian government side with business or consumers?

    Modi in the USA
    Milan Vaishnav, Maroof Raza October 9, 2014 Georgetown Journal of International Affairs

    The prime minister’s primary objective in the United States was to make the pitch that India is once again a hospitable environment for investment.

    A New Panchsheel
    C. Raja Mohan October 9, 2014 Indian Express

    It is one thing for Modi to say India needs to be more practical in dealing with the outside world. It is entirely another to get his ministerial colleagues and the bureaucracy to act on that basis in a sustained manner.

    Chinese Takeaway: Not So Coy
    C. Raja Mohan October 8, 2014 Indian Express

    Modi's reference to the South China Sea says more about India’s changing political attitude than its policy towards the maritime territorial disputes between Beijing and its Asian neighbours.

    The Second Chance
    C. Raja Mohan October 6, 2014 Eurasia Review

    If the expansive agenda unveiled by Modi and Obama is matched by bureaucratic purposefulness in Delhi and Washington, India and America have a second chance at building a strategic partnership of considerable consequence.

    Will Delhi and Washington Be Able to Transform Defense Cooperation?
    Petr Topychkanov October 2, 2014

    Indian and U.S. leaders recently discussed military-technological cooperation. Time will tell whether the countries will be ready to transform their cooperation by translating words into actions.

    Russia and the New South East Asia
    Akio Kawato September 9, 2014

    East Asia is coming back to a phase in which economic considerations dominate. In this milieu Russia may lose her place in East Asia, because it will be deprived of an opportunity to play China against the West.

    The New Indian Authorities Know Russia Firsthand

    Narendra Modi’s and his associates’ foreign policy experience will guide them toward a balanced policy in which Russia will play one of the key roles.

    Can Russia Sell Arms to Both India and Pakistan?

    The launch of military-technological cooperation between Russia and Pakistan, in addition to the long-existing ties with India, would provide balance to Moscow’s relations with New Delhi and Islamabad.

    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.

    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.

    Modi’s Transformative Moment?
    Christophe Jaffrelot, Milan Vaishnav October 17, 2014 Washington, DC

    The first 100 days of a new government can be tumultuous as power shifts hands and leaders make dramatic decisions. But Prime Minister Narendra Modi has thus far proceeded in a more nuanced fashion, making an assessment of his first four months in office more complicated.

    The End of Convergence?
    Uri Dadush, Vikram Nehru, Carl Dahlman October 15, 2014 Washington, DC

    Convergence, the narrowing of the income gap between poor and rich countries, is one of the great stories of our time. A recent report shows that convergence has slowed in recent years, and that productivity in developing countries is not rising rapidly enough in key sectors.
