Think Tanks Twinning Initiative author 2017, Gateway House, IAI, Gateway House publications, Istituto Affari Internazionali, Publications

Relations between the European Union (EU) and India have been growing in quantity and quality in the last two decades. Alongside the economic dimension, the political and security elements of the relationship have emerged as the most promising area for further collaboration between the two sides. This volume brings together analyses and recommendations on EU-India security relations in the fields of: (i) maritime security and freedom of navigation; (ii) cyber security and data protection; (iii) space policy and satellite navigation; (iv) defence cooperation. The chapters have been written by a select pan-European and Indian group of experts tasked by the Rome-based Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) and the Mumbai-based Gateway House (GH) in the framework of the EU-India Think Tank Twinning Initiative – a public diplomacy project aimed at connecting research institutions in Europe and India funded by the EU. The book provides the reader with original research and innovative insights into how to move forward EU-India relations. It will be essential reading for scholars and policy makers interested in the subject.

EU-India-Starting a More Adventurous Conversation - EU India Twinning Think Tanks Initiative

EU-India: Starting a More Adventurous Conversation

Think Tanks Twinning Initiative author 2016, Gateway House, IAI, Gateway House publications, Istituto Affari Internazionali, Publications

Twelve years after they launched their strategic partnership, the EU and India appear ready to take their relationship into new and potentially more adventurous, exciting and mutually bene cial directions. The summit in March 2016 marked the beginning of a more mature and politically relevant dialogue between the EU and India. Implementation of the di erent priorities set out at the March summit, however, will require time, energy and e ort to keep up the momentum. High-level summits should be held regularly – instead of at four-year intervals – so that leaders can maintain contacts and build better relations. New areas of cooperation, including in the security sector, must be strengthened and quickly lead to real action. Given their di erent histories, identities and priorities, the EU and India will continue to disagree on many issues. Such di erences, however, must not become an obstacle to better relations.
