    • Senior Fellow, IDSA, Dr Ashok Behuria’s article on Pakistan’s perspective of the Indian elections, titled ‘Between alarm and hope Indian elections through pak lens’ was published in The Pioneer on April 14, 2019.

    • Senior Fellow, IDSA, Dr Ashok Behuria’s article on India’s air strikes on Pakistan, titled ‘Operation Balakot And After: Will Pakistan Act Against Terror?’ was published by the All India Radio (AIR) World Service, an External Services Division of AIR on March 05, 2019.
      India’s “operation Balakot” was designed to convey a strong message to Pakistan sponsored terrorism in Kashmir. The message was perhaps the sternest so far from the Indian side. It was ably done even under the threat of upsetting the nuclear deterrence-stability temporarily, writes Dr Behuria.
