India-Nato Dialogue : Addressing International Security and Regional Challenges

Edited by Dipankar Banerjee and D Suba Chandra
 

The institute of Peace and Conflict Studies (IPCS) has been engaged since 2004 in an annual informal strategic dialogue with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The strategic dialogue in 2009 was conducted in two parts. The first was a full day open seminar among the strategic community in collaboration with the United Services Institute (USI) of India. Presentations were made by leading experts which were discussed and debated. The second was a select meeting among smaller group of senior strategic experts including members of NSAB. The conference was chaired by the Chairman, NSAB, Ambassador Shankar Bajpai. This book is summary of these deliberations along with the keynote address by the then German Ambassador HE Bernd Mutzelburg, who soon after assumed the position of that country’s special envoy to Afghanistan. This book provides the needed backdrop and a valued addition to the ongoing strategic discourse on the future of the South Asian Security.
