Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the literature on India’s foreign policy which is directly or indirectly related to international norm. The analysis indicates that Indian foreign policy writings have rarely been informed by normative considerations mainly due to the predominance of state-centric realist and neo-realist approaches therein. This chapter explores the normative aspects of Indian international engagements, focusing on the principles of non-alignment, democracy, liberal internationalism, and human rights. It also provides an overview of the concept of norms and their deployment in international relations theory.

Keywords:   foreign policy, India, international norm, state-centric realist approach, neo-realist approach, non-alignment, democracy, liberal internationalism, human rights
