Oxford University Press

This chapter traces how the Indian practice of diplomacy has been conceptualized and suggests that this practice often relies on unreflexively applied frameworks of standard international relations discourse. It contends that this state of affairs may be attributed to a set of assumptions presenting the practice of Indian diplomacy as a European derivative. This chapter also considers the issue of hegemonic conceptualization and the role of the Mahabharata in the practice of diplomacy.

Keywords:   practice of diplomacy, India, international relations, Indian diplomacy, European derivative, hegemonic conceptualization, Mahabharata
