Since Independence in 1947, foreign policy experts and maritime strategists have been assessing the nature of threat to India’s maritime security. After the 26/11 sea-borne terrorist attack on Mumbai, the maritime threat perception of policy makers, especially at strategic and foreign policy level, has undergone a fundamental change.

     With a coastline of over 7,500 kilometres, India is naturally a maritime nation. The maritime dimension is vital for coastal security, energy security, geo-strategic and geo-political developments, and trade with other countries.

   This book contains 13 research papers which provide in-depth analysis of various dimensions of India’s foreign policy and maritime security in a broad-based multi-disciplinary perspective. Authored by experts in the field, the papers are sure to interest scholars and students involved in the study/ research of these vital areas of national importance.
