This chapter examines the internal factors that have shaped Indian foreign policy post-independence. It first traces the evolution of India’s domestic politics and foreign policy since independence. It then discusses various domestic, regional, and global security challenges relevant to India today. It concludes by re-examining historical trends to determine if India can manage these challenges effectively as it negotiates its rise to great power status in the foreign policy sphere.
