Does the Elephant Dance? Contemporary Indian Foreign Policy

Серия: "-"

India today looms large globally, where it hardly loomed at all twenty years ago. It is likely to be a key global actor throughout the twenty-first century and could well emerge soon as one of the top five global powers. Does the Elephant Dance? seeks to survey the main features of Indian foreign policy. It identifies elements of Indian history relevant to the topic; examines the role therein of domestic politics and internal and external security challenges, and of domestic and international economic factors; and in successive chapters delves into the specifics of India's policy within its South Asian neighbourhood, and with respect to China, the USA, West Asia (the Middle East), East Asia, Europe and Russia, and multilateral diplomacy. It also touches on Indian ties to Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean. India's soft power, the role of migration in its policy, and other cross-cutting issues are analyzed, as is the role and approach of several categories of foreign policy actors in India. Substantive conclusions close out the volume, and touch, inter alia, on the absence of an organizing framework for Indian foreign policy.

Career

Diplomatic career

Malone served as a Canadian Ambassador to the UN from 1992 to 1994,[9][10] after representing Canada on the UN's Economic and Social Council, 1990-92.[11] He was appointed as the Canadian High Commissioner to India,[3] and the non-resident Ambassador to Nepal and Bhutan.[12]

Human rights groups and NGOs

From 1998 until 2004, when Terje Rød-Larsen took over, he was the president of the International Peace Institute.[13][14] He is associated with the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs.[15]

International Development Research Centre

Malone became president of the International Development Research Centre, a Canadian crown corporation that supports evidence-based and policy relevant research into healthier, more equitable, and more prosperous societies in the global south, in June 2008,[16] and became president in July 2008.[17]

Haiti

Malone has a long-term interest in Haiti, which he visited as part of UN delegations and as a representative of human rights groups. His book Decision-Making in the UN Security Council: The Case of Haiti is "an account of the struggle to address the Haiti crisis from 1990 to 1998."[18] A former supporter of president Jean-Bertrand Aristide, he was highly critical of the international pressure that resulted in Aristide's ousting, singling out the United States, France, and Canada in an 2004 op-ed piece published in the International Herald Tribune[19] and The New York Times.[18] In an interview with the Neue Zürcher Zeitung, he expressed mixed optimism that a lengthy (15 to 20 years) international involvement might bring about positive change, but lamented the lack of interest in "Paris, Washington, or even Ottawa" in a long-term strategy.[20] In an op-ed piece in The New York Times written with Kirsti Samuels (also of the International Peace Institute) published in July 2004, he advocated an international commitment to long-term nation-building for Haiti.[21]

He was a visitor of the Hotel Montana that was destroyed in the 2010 Haiti earthquake.[1]

Authorship

Malone has written a number of books, many of them concerned with the United Nations and international development and peacekeeping efforts. His penulstimate book is The Law and Practice of the United Nations. In 2011, he published 'Does the Elephant Dance? Contemporary Indian Foreign Policy'. Earlier he had written on the political economy of civil wars, on the causes of violent conflict and conflict prevention, and on Haiti. His next book, forthcoming in 2012, co-edited with Sebastian von Einsiedel and Suman Pradhan for Cambridge University Press, addresses Nepal's current transition from civil war to fargile peace. He is currently working on a survey of development thought.[2]

Malone's The International Struggle Over Iraq: Politics in the UN Security Council 1980-2005 was nominated for the 2006-2007 Lionel Gelber Prize, an award given annually to the best book on international affairs.[3]
