The Agartala Doctrine

A Proactive Northeast in Indian Foreign Policy

edited by Subir Bhaumik

  • Highlights the challenges and opportunities for the northeastern states of India that can be leveraged for economic growth, strategic advantage, and cultural influence on a national scale
  • Critically analyses the 'Agartala doctrine', which was formulated at the July 2014 Tripura conclave and which laid down a prescribed course for Indian states that want to influence national foreign policy
  • Provides a rare glimpse into how tiny Tripura influenced Indian foreign policy towards East Pakistan and Bangladesh for half a century
  • Offers a rich mix of scholarship from India and abroad that brings in diverse perspectives on issues related to the Indian Northeast and their links with Bangladesh, China, Myanmar, Russia, and the U.S.
  • Looks not only at bilateral issues and policies but also at regional platforms, such as the BCIM and the BIMSTEC
