India’s domestic and foreign policy – Implications for trade

September 30, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

On 17 June 2022, the EU relaunched negotiations with India for a Free Trade Agreement after a nine-year hiatus. Yet, India’s continued economic ties with Russia and its increased Hindunationalism domestically are cause for concern. Ahead of the next round of FTA negotiations in October, this briefing seeks to foster an in-depth understanding of India’s foreign policy priorities, and thereby assist in the development of a stable and predictable partnership.

By engaging experts on international relations and South Asia, this briefing provides insights into how India navigates foreign policy decisions by exploring 1) India’s foreign policy and trade goals and intentions, 2) how increasing nationalism manifests in foreign policy and 3) centralisation of foreign-policy decision making.

The event is conceptualised for Members of the European Parliament and their assistants.
