Pragati September 2009: Studying the world
Despite a strong beginning in the years after Independence, the study of international affairs in India, according to Muthiah Alagappa, the author of an in-depth essay in this month’s issue of Pragati
, “(has) not kept pace with the changing scope and content of India’s international relations that must now address new challenges, problems, threats, and opportunities in a wide range of domains including economics, climate change, security and regional and global governance.” We feature a detailed look at how international studies can be rejuvenated in India’s academic institutions and think tanks.
This is an archived blog post from The Acorn.
Also in this issue: police reforms, liberalising the visa regime, managing the fallout of Sharm-el-Sheikh, tidings from Sri Lanka and a perspective on India’s priorities in the context of the global discourse over climate change.
On the domestic front: failure of the monsoon this year might reduce some regions to come to depend on the rural employment guarantee scheme; a scheme which we argue is a deeply flawed one.
There’s much more in the September 2009 issue of Pragati. Read and Share!
