Prakash Menon, Nandan Nilekani, Srinath Raghavan, Shyam Saran, Siddharth Varadarajan – have released “NonAlignment 2.0: A Foreign and Strategic Policy for India in the Twenty First Century”. The report was released two days ago in New Delhi, and a distinguished panel of speakers and guests commented on the publication, including, Shri M. K. Narayanan, Hon’ble Governor of West Bengal; Shri Brajesh Mishra, former National Security Advisor; Shri Shivshankar Menon, National Security Advisor.
“NonAlignment 2.0 is an attempt to identify the basic principles that should guide India’s foreign and strategic policy over the next decade. The purposes of this strategy document are three-fold: to lay out the opportunities that India enjoys in the international sphere; to identify the challenges and threats it is likely to confront; and to define the broad perspective and approach that India should adopt as it works to enhance its strategic autonomy.”
