Miller Publishes Op-ed on Geopolitical Challenges Facing India

Manjari Chatterjee Miller, currently a Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and on leave from the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University where she is an Associate Professor of International Relations, published an op-ed in Hindustan Times on the difficulties India faces balancing its interconnected global relationships in 2022. This is the fourteenth of Miller’s monthly columns in Hindustan Times.

In her article, titled “India’s geopolitical challenges in 2022,” Miller explores India’s most challenging geopolitical goings-on and which of its global relationships will continue to be the most consequential. Paramount among India’s geopolitical struggles in 2022 will be balancing its relationships with China, Russia, and the United States. As she points out, India is in a difficult position as any action perceived as being favorable to one of these three great powers will not sit well with the others. Miller also notes that relations with Pakistan remain a key issue as increased militarization of the India-Pakistan border – similar to that on the border shared by India and China – has ramped up tensions between the two countries. As Miller suggests, success for India this year “will be determined by its ability [to] balance these interconnected and complicated relationships.”
