It identifies the three main discernible and distinctive frames of references of writings by Indian scholars. These include the realist paradigm, the notion of border as space, and the communitarian framework. The analysis in this study shows that international relations has no agreement on basics, be it methodological orientations, the notion of politics, ontological preferences, and the purpose of scholarship.
