Contours of India-EU Engagement: Multiplicity of Experiences


The unprecedented uncertainties marked by the pandemic and strategic conflicts between the key forces have redirected our attention to the importance of partnerships and engagements in international relations. India-EU dialogues through the annual summits have familiarized each other towards a greater understanding of one another?s perspectives and interests. Their strategic engagement has broadened in the last few years to include climate change, energy, connectivity, migration, education, science and technology, and research and innovation. The growing convergence in Brussels and New Delhi?s strategic interests open up new windows of opportunities for greater cooperation on diversified issues. Capturing the new momentum in India-EU relations, this book uncovers various issues and topics spanning across politics, education, and culture. Each chapter in this book analyzes the scope of the cooperation, the existing challenges that India and the EU encounter, and provides policy recommendations for the future.
