Change and Continuity

Edited by: Fazal Mahmood, Rafiullah Azmi

Stretching from Iran to Turkey, West Asia has loomed large for India's foreign policy makers, irrespective of its politically turbulent nature. India has tried to build good relations with West Asia, since both are endowed with vast resources of a varied nature, making for a highly desirable relationship. With a large population and economic potential, India can play a vital role in the development of West Asia. On the other end of the spectrum, West Asia has the potential to meet the growing energy requirements of India. This book explores and analyzes India's multi-faceted engagement with West Asia from an interdisciplinary perspective. The research papers included in the book relate to energy security, migration, bilateral trade, diplomatic relations, India's policy on Palestine, and the issue of terrorism.
