    Current Issue: July-August 2021

    Two co-authored articles highlight the current issue. Vinay Kaura and Chakravarti Singh analyse the history of the UNSC reform process with a particular focus on India’s attempts to become a permanent member to achieve its global ambitions as well as the major hurdles along the way. T.K. Manoj Kumar and D.P.K. Pillay outline the main strands of the formation of the Indian Diaspora, weaving together a historical narrative with a contemporary analysis, which highlights the overseas group’s significance not only as the single–largest contributor of foreign exchange and development in the country, but also its contribution as one of the premier influencers of societal change. Taking a multi-level approach and empirical evidences of 35 years of Doi Moi (renovation), Le Dinh Tinh examines how Vietnam has been able to ensure its security goal by embarking on an ambitious development strategy and expanding its international role. The Archives section, carries an incisive analysis of the Indo-Soviet Treaty by K. Subrahmanyam, in an inimitable style that over the years, came to be identified exclusively as his own.
