Highlighted in this issue is an argument for India to take a strategic approach towards trade and infrastructure and the ensuing need for a co-ordinated inter-ministerial approach towards policy formulation, negotiations and implementation.
In foreign affairs: you will find perspectives on India-US military ties, governing the diaspora, diplomacy in the neighbourhood and a critique of India’s engagement with the United Nations.
On the home front, the highlight is an essay on the newly introduced Right to Education Act. In parliament, we also make an argument for parliament to regain its supremacy over the executive. Finally, there’s a review essay on the lessons from India’s long experience countering insurgencies.
To mark the third anniversary, may we request you to share this issue with at least three of your friends; and encourage them to sign-up for the free digital edition or Rs 800/$80 (min) for the print edition.
