Current Issue: January 2017

The first issue of 2017 has a line-up highlighting India’s concerns in the wake of the US policy of Asian rebalance; analysing regionalism in South Asia; making a case for ‘white hull diplomacy’ in times of regional tensions rising over disputed waters in Southeast Asia; and the possibility of conceiving South America and Southern Africa as subsystemic unipolarities under Brazilian and South African primacy. The issue also carries two interesting essays – one on the Brexit, which has paved the way for a major realignment of economic and political forces not only in Europe but across the world, and the other on the dilemma facing the Afghan government whether protracted military engagement or a negotiated political settlement should be the way out for the war-ravaged nation.
