In the current era of globalisation, the domestic landscape of every nation is deeply impacted by the major international developments across the globe. The orientation of the contemporary world order is becoming increasingly global – providing significant opportunities while posing numerous challenges to the states. In this backdrop, the states must develop effective and responsive strategies to tackle the challenges while capitalizing on the opportunities. Recognizing this sweeping trend, Ananta Aspen Centre has allotted significant space to Foreign Policy on its agenda. As a part of its mission to facilitate open dialogues on cross-cutting issues on foreign policy, the Centre undertakes multiple initiatives to generate informed debates on foreign policy issues and assist the policy-makers to respond with more efficient strategies. The initiatives on Foreign Policy includes Track II Dialogues, Round Tables, Public Sessions and Task Force / Study Groups Reports.
