Description

India faces an array of national security challenges ranging from territorial disputes with China and Pakistan, state-sponsored cross-border terrorism to internal security issues related, ethnic and class-based insurgencies. Its national security agenda encompasses issues related to economics, environment, development, and transnational criminal activities. More than two decades of rapid economic growth in India has also added energy security to the national security matrix. Associated with its economic rise, the country’s national security agenda now includes a wider vision for the Indo-Pacific, with implications for power projection, and for India’s contributions to global peacekeeping missions through the United Nations.
