Current Geopolitical Environment


The 21st Century geopolitical landscape is characterized by the Complex Interdependence framework, wherein geopolitical, economic, and national security dimensions are more intertwined than ever before in history.

The inordinate increase in terrorist strikes worldwide, and the establishment of anIslamic Caliphate that is envisaged to transcend national boundaries, threaten the extant world order. Likewise, the increasing socio-economic divide and unrest within countries, along with religious polarization in countries that have sizeable Muslim populations, also have international ramifications in today’s interconnected world. Hence, the canvas of topics discussed on this blog will be wide, notwithstanding its India-centric focus. This blog seeks to promote candid and meaningful exchange of views, but without getting unduly polemical or offensive, which unfortunately characterizes most public discourse these days.
