India in the United Nations
Interplay of Interests and Principles

  • C.S.R. MURTHY - Professor at the School of International Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi

August 2020 | 344 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd
India in the United Nations: Interplay of Interests and Principles presents a holistic and systematic understanding of India’s long and rich association with the United Nations (UN) ever since it was established nearly 75 years ago. It examines notable patterns and phases of India’s role in the UN and focuses on key areas of contemporary relevance where India’s diplomatic efforts were at play. These include the India–Pakistan conflicts as well as other regional conflicts in the context of new threats to security, peacekeeping operations, countering international terrorism, protection of human rights, development diplomacy, internet governance and the question of enlargement of the Security Council.

This book offers glimpses of India’s persistence in framing its priorities and strategies for securing moral, legal and political endorsement in line with the established principles of the UN. The insights from these cumulative experiences of the present and previous governments are pertinent to crafting India’s future global role.
