India and Its South Asian Neighbours

India and Its South Asian Neighbours

(p.101) 5 India and Its South Asian Neighbours
Does the Elephant Dance?

David M. Malone

Oxford University Press

This chapter analyses India’s relations with its immediate neighbours other than China. It first lays out a sense of how India’s approach to its neighbours has evolved over the past two decades. It then suggests that India’s approach to its neighbours is both too often reactive and at times quite dismissive, but the country has been trying much harder in recent years to accommodate and tolerate neighbourly differences. India’s regional rivalry with China as played out in countries abutting India is also discussed.

Keywords:   Indian foreign policy, foreign relations, China
