Abstract

Global Governance 17 (2011), 311–329 From High Ground to High Table: The Evolution of Indian Multilateralism Rohan Mukherjee and David M. Malone Independent India’s multilateral strategy was designed defensively as a means to provide the country with some leeway in an intensely competi- tive bipolar world. Today, India casts itself as an emerging power intent on exerting the bilateral and multilateral influence that the country’s found- ing leaders had long aspired to. Obsolete frameworks such as nonalign- ment and developing world leadership have mostly been jettisoned in the process. However, questions remain about India’s willingness and capacity to take on global responsibilities to match its global aspirations. This arti- cle traces the evolution of India’s multilateral approach and examines its multilateral stance through several prisms: the UN Security Council, the World Trade Organization, global climate change negotiations, and some emerging international groupings of states in which India plays a role. Among our conclusions is that, in India’s diplomacy, much depends on do- mestic factors.
