India in Africa: Leveraging soft presence
Published on : Tuesday, June 07, 2011
At the recently concluded Africa India Forum Summit in Ethiopia, leaders of India and Ethiopia discussed the prospect of enhancing economic ties. Outside, ordinary people in Addis Ababa were rushing to secure a seat to view Indian films that were being screened. While official ties between the various governments in Africa and India have had their ebbs and flows, there is a long history of economic and cultural engagement between the peoples. This soft presence of India in Africa lays the foundation for a more productive engagement in the coming decades.

Reagan’s Overrated Foreign Policy
Published on : Wednesday, February 09, 2011
Conservatives have venerated Reagan for limiting government and winning the Cold War—alleged accomplishments that were either untrue or vastly exaggerated, respectively. Although various strains of conservatism all try to say that Reagan was one of them, his policies were neoconservative. Reagan’s stated goals upon taking office were to increase defense spending, cut taxes, and balance the budget. Of course, the third goal was last and least, because to do so while doing the first two would require deep cuts in domestic spending, including entitlement programs. That never happened, writes Ivan Eland in The Independent Institute Newsroom.
Peace,Not Partition
Published on : Friday, April 23, 2010
The core issue for Pakistan is Kashmir.But the core issue for India is not just terrorism but protecting our pluralist democracy.Kashmir is not mere territory to be kept under Indian jurisdiction at all costs, writes Madhu Kishwar in The Times Of India.
"Oil Security" Doesn't Warrant Supporting Dictators
Published on : Thursday, August 27, 2009
Did Scotland return convicted Lockerbie airplane bomber Abdel Basset Ali al-Megrahi to his native Libya, not because he has terminal prostate cancer, but instead to help curry favor with an oil-rich government? If so, it would be doing pretty much what the United States has been doing since 1945: cozying up to one of the worst human-rights abusers on the planet, the government of Saudi Arabia, according to Ivan Eland, director of the Independent Institute's Center on Peace & Liberty.
Honduras: Why the UN and the international community are mistaken
Published on : Wednesday, July 08, 2009
When in the middle of the night an ousted President is flown out of the country by the military just to appear half an hour later on all TV channels in his pajamas, it is easy to be reminded of military coups. What a pity that next to nobody did care to ask more questions. If they had, they would have noticed that this “military coup” was ordered by the lawfully elected representatives of the people, the members of the national parliament and the Supreme Court crossing all party lines, Christian Lüth for the Hispanic American Centre For Economic Research.
Iran's human face
Published on : Thursday, July 02, 2009
Handled the wrong way, Iran threatens to define Barack Obama the way Iraq defined George W Bush. All of which leaves Mr Obama engaged in delicate diplomatic footwork. He must stand up for democracy, condemning the suppression in Iran as “outrageous,” even as he gives the ayatollahs no excuse to crack down on the protesters as foreign agents, and all the while ensuring the western offer to Iran of rapprochement in return for compromise remains on the table. It is subtle work, writes Jonathan Freeland in The Hindu.
Western leaders falter on Iran, again
Published on : Wednesday, June 24, 2009
John McCain and Barack Obama faltered in their recent comments about Iran's recent protests. McCain (and others on the right) erred by attempting to score political points domestically, whereas Obama erred by discounting the differences between Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his opponent Mir Hossein Mousavi, whose post-election challenges run counter to the country's leading cleric, reports Alvaro Vargas Llosa for The Independent Institute.
Pakistan's identity crisis root cause of its troubles
Published on : Friday, June 12, 2009
Pakistanis feel humiliated when their country is mocked at as a “failed state”. For all its afflictions, Pakistan (a functioning democracy, however flawed, with a free press, an independent judiciary and a vibrant civil society) is by no means a failed state. A new book, Making Sense of Pakistan (Hurst & Company, London) by Farzana Shaikh — a highly regarded UK-based Pakistani scholar and Fellow of Chatham House — argues that there is no hope for Pakistan unless it sorts out its identity crisis, writes Hasan Suroor in The Hindu.
US-India Relations: Ensuring Indian Prosperity in the Coming Demographic Boom
Published on : Friday, May 15, 2009
The U.S. has not played an important role in Indian economic development, but could help to identify crucial areas for economic liberalization and establish channels for private education financing. Demographic and economic conditions make primary and secondary education vital to India's future. With the public education system in tatters, the government needs to allow private education to contribute far more, writes Derek Scissors and Michelle Kaffenberger for Heritage Foundation.
