Foreign Policy and Maritime Security of India

Edited by: K. S. Pavithran

In India, foreign policy experts and maritime strategists have been assessing the nature of any threats to India's maritime security. With a coastline of over 7,500 kilometers, India is naturally a maritime nation. The maritime dimension is vital for coastal security, energy security, geo-strategic and geo-political developments, and trade with other countries. Following the 2008 sea-born terrorist attack on Mumbai, the maritime threat perception by policy makers, especially at the strategic and foreign policy level, has undergone a fundamental change. This book contains research papers that provide an in-depth analysis of the various dimensions of India's foreign policy and maritime security in a broad-based multi-disciplinary perspective. Authored by experts in the field, the papers will be of interest to scholars and students involved in the study/ research of these vital areas of India's security.
