Exploring Emergent Global Thresholds Towards 2030

Manoranjan Mohanty and Richard A. Falk and Victor Faessel | Apr 2017

Our current era can be described as the beginning of a new, historical phase of the ‘Anthropocene’age, where humans are becoming increasingly conscious of the effects of their actions on nature,culture, and human relationships. As the first section shows, this realisation is acquiring greater significance in current development discourse and policymaking, particularly in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. The fate of the human species rests on a sustainable collaboration with nature, as is apparent by the impact of climate change on food, energy, and water.

Choices: Inside the Making of India's Foreign Policy

Shivshankar Menon | Nov 2016

Shivshankar Menon gives an insider’s account of the negotiations, discussions and assessments that went into the making of five pivotal choices in India’s recent history. These include the decision not to use overt military force against Pakistan after 26/11; the civil nuclear deal with the United States; the border agreement with China; the response to the last months of Sri Lanka’s brutal civil war; and the thinking that underlay India’s No First Use nuclear policy. Drawing on his long and distinguished career as a diplomat holding critical positions in India’s external affairs ministry and in the prime minister’s office, Menon considers each situation against the backdrop of India’s evolving definition of her place in the changing global landscape.
