Second Symposium on India's Foreign Policy in South Asia
Symbiosis Law School, Noida is organizing the Second Symposium on 'India's Foreign Policy in South Asia' supported by Public Diplomacy Division, Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India.
Date: 23rd March, 2013
Since the dawn of India's independence we have seen a meteoric rise of India in global affairs is a. India key player in the new world order. Through centuries India has been subject of countless invasions and assaults, but as a sovereign nation it has reserved the most sincere and austere sangfroid in conducting its own external affairs. India's policy planner brought changes in foreign policy according to changed world scenario.
To a large extent India's South Asia policy has traditionally remained preoccupied with the concentration on Pakistan with little and occasional focus on the other regional countries. Apart from such bilateral interactions, the recent changes in the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) set up have further broadened the regional aspects of the organization. All these would require a well monitored and coordinated policy of engagement at different levels (both government and non-official) within the parameters of an evolving regional policy. Hence forth this symposium aims to seek solutions to these kinds of challenges.
The Symposium is aimed at not only bringing in the views of experts and researchers but also at disseminating it for the betterment of the existing responsibility that every citizen undertakes for the betterment of the society. The knowledge of various experts specialized in this area would set a benchmark for the improvement that still needs to be done to improve the existing scenario.
Outcome expected included: Looking into India as a regional and global partner in South Asia; Critical and concrete analysis of India's foreign Policy; Audience will learn the basic outlines of social, religious and political development in pre-colonial India/South Asia and Understand the geo strategic setting of India and its relations with South Asian countries.
