About the Book

Over the coming decade, converging global security challenges will necessitate combined efforts by states to manage threats and maximise opportunities. Among the most significant challenges that India and Africa will face in paricular, are reforms in global governance institutions, maritime security threats in the Indian Ocean, energy insecurity and the rise of extremism and terrorism. This volume combines Indian and African perspectives with regard to the common security challenges they are likely to face in the foreseeable future. It also seeks answers to a wide spectrum of issues: What are the paramenters of the emerging security cooperation between India and Africa in recent years? Can India and affected African states share the lessons derived from transnational terrorist threats? What are the emerging threats to maritime security in India and Africa? What are the critical challenges that Africa and India face in the energy sector? And finally how can both sides cooperate in these areas? It is hoped that the views expressed in this book will lead to a greater understanding of the security concerns faced by Africa and India.
