Pakistan’s Opportunities

... This developed into a genocide where at least 200,000 Bengalis were murdered and probably 2-3 million Bengalis displaced in Pakistan’s Operation Searchlight. Many of the 1971 refugees from Bangladesh with their descendants still live as unrecognized Indian citizens in Assam, eastern India. Back then, India seized the moment, both to stop the war, stop the flood of refugees, and to severely diminish Pakistan by splitting East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) from the rest of Pakistan in the West. For India,...

Regional connectivity needs due attention including the successful execution of alternative economic corridors and maritime trade corridors. In conclusion, the signing of the milestone ...


Challenges for India — Russia Strategic Partnership

... that with the establishment of a free trade area between India and the EAEU, additional opportunities for diversifying trade will be created. However, there is not much progress being made in this field. Negotiations are still going on the FTA between India and EAEU. The trade between the EAEU members and India is still low. The trade volume between New Delhi and the member states stood at $7.3 billion in 2016, a dip from $7.6 billion in 2012. In contrary, India’s trade volume with the US and China is higher ...

The SCO states will become more involved in the Eurasian economic agenda through ... ... summit once again highlighted the lack of consensus within the SCO concerning the Belt and Road Initiative.

Will Russia Return to Europe?

... global politics. On its own, it is clear that Russia does not have any near- or medium-term potential to claim for itself the role of a bona fide ‘power centre’ of global rank. And yet in the exclusive company of the rising giants of Asia (China and India), which significantly outpace Russia in economic growth, Moscow would inevitably soon find itself in the arrière-plan , regardless of the geopolitical constructions that will determine the Eurasian world. Indeed, the relegation of Russia to the ...


The Marco Polo Initiative is born, a network of young European leaders looking to the East

... integration depth. Over 50 countries from all over the world have voiced their interest in signing trade deals with the new union.In 2016 Vladimir Putin and Nursultan Nazarbayev co-proposed a more extensive “Greater Eurasian Partnership” involving the EAEU, the CIS countries, China, India, Iran, and other interested countries and associations of the continent. Since then, the EAEU has been working on the creation of a network of free trade areas in the wider Eurasian space. The Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) negotiated free trade ...


Recalibrate India — Russia Relationship

... 80% of the total respondents have their businesses in Russia and expect better market access, visa regime and investment security as necessary conditions for improving trade between two nations. The Joint Feasibility Study Group (JFSG) instituted by India and EAEU authorities painted a similar picture. Both reports emphasized the success of the International North-South Trade Corridor (INSTC) and the creation of “Green Corridor” between India and Russia to achieve the USD 30 billion trade goal by 2025....


Indo-Pacific or Community of Common Destiny?

... and from the Hawaiian Islands in the east to the Red Sea in the west has many shared features and is in essence a single ecosystem. Approximately a decade ago, geostrategists borrowed the biological term and gave it a different spin. It was originally Indian and Japanese strategists that discovered, so to speak, the geopolitical Indo-Pacific, justifying the strengthening of bilateral Indian-Japanese cooperation. At the present time, however, and especially following the arrival of the administration ...


SCO: The Cornerstone Rejected by the Builders of a New Eurasia?

... inter-regional and global structures gravitate towards Eurasia in one way or another. This means that the SCO is still facing institutional competition, albeit in an implicit and relatively mild form. We have already mentioned the SCO’s rivalry with the EAEU, but this is not the only possible scenario. For example, the BRICS organization (which includes Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) is based on the Eurasian triangle of Russia, India and China (the “RIC” part of the acronym). Now that India is a member of the SCO, the latter has come to reproduce, somewhat belatedly, the Eurasian triangle of BRICS; ...


Reflecting on Greater Eurasia and Its Role in the World

... coordination with the policy initiatives of relevant countries, such as the Eurasian Economic Union of Russia, the Master Plan on ASEAN Connectivity, the Bright Road initiative of Kazakhstan.” Kazakhstan gets a special mention despite being a part of the EAEU. Secondly, the idea that tensions within the SCO caused by the admission of Pakistan and India have been “informally stabilized by the Russia–China ‘axis’” is ludicrous. In fact, India is deeply suspicious of Pakistan, and to a lesser degree of China. In particularly, the China Pakistan Economic Corridor raises Indian hackles. Ernesto ...
