International Cooperation

The Foreign and Security Policy programme has been designed with a recognition of India as a regional power in South Asia and a key geopolitical actor in a multipolar world. The programme’s activities seek to promote dialogue between India and its regional and global stakeholders and investigate new entry points for harnessing India’s role in achieving a just and peaceful global system. Some of our initiatives include:

  • Non-traditional security challenges have grown in importance in recent years and offer a baseline to build collaborative approaches to regional and international politics. FES India  works  to understand regional perceptions on non-traditional security topics and its relation to traditional security challenges, with the intent to contribute ideas to regional cooperation.
  • India and the global order: Understanding global political trends from the Indian worldview and finding areas of synergy between like-minded countries that would allow for a functioning, rules-based order.
  • Advancing cooperation between Germany, Europe and India in frontier areas like digital governance, that require regulation and standard-setting.
  •  Advocating a multi-stakeholder, inclusive approach to foreign policy thinking and formulation. This ‘feminist foreign policy’ approach goes beyond using a gender-trained lens in foreign policy approaches. It seeks to cultivate multiple voices in policy formulations, for enhanced benefit to human societies.
