India-Kazakhstan Perspectives: Regional and International Interactions

This book is joint research product of scholars from India and Kazakhstan and focuses on current trends in relations between the two countries. It contains a detailed examination of the cultural, historical, political, diplomatic and economic aspects of India - Kazakhstan cooperation at the bilateral, regional and international levels. Both countries are poised to play significant roles in international affairs and the book advances knowledge in understanding how and why these developments have occurred. This compendium provides valuable and timely insights into the contours of their foreign policies and emerging trends of importance to students and scholars of regional and international affairs around the world. The book pays special attention to the multi-dimensional nature of cooperation between India and Kazakhstan while surveying each other's international relations with major powers and addressing regional security issues. The book aims at enabling a better understanding of Indo-Kazakh relations through scholarly exchanges and sharing of perceptions in the gamut of politico-economic-nation building matters faced in the region. The book contains 20 articles from distinguished scholars from India and Kazakhstan. It is the first of its kind.

ICAF and DIR of the Al-Farabi Kazakh National University hope that this book would contribute towards a greater and enlightened appreciation of Indo-Kazakh relations and advance common interest in Central Asia and other regions. Both believe that this book would be of use at the Track I and Track II levels of engagement.  It is likely to be of direct interest to scholars, policy makers, diplomats, entrepreneurs, academics and decision makers in both countries as well as those with a general interest in Central Asia - a region which has assumed a higher importance in recent times.
