Moving Forward EU-India Relations. The Significance of the Security Dialogues

Negli ultimi due decenni è aumentata la quantità e la qualità delle relazioni Unione europea-India. Accanto alla dimensione economica, gli aspetti politici e di sicurezza della relazione si sono affermati come l’area più promettente per una maggiore collaborazione tra le due parti. Questo volume riunisce analisi e raccomandazioni sulle relazioni di sicurezza UE-India nei seguenti settori: (i) sicurezza marittima e libertà di navigazione; (ii) sicurezza informatica e protezione dei dati; (iii) politica spaziale e satellitare; (iv) cooperazione di difesa. I capitoli sono stati scritti da un selezionato gruppo di esperti europei e indiani su richiesta dall’Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) di Roma e del Gateway House (GH) di Mumbai nell’ambito della EU-India Think Tank Twinning Initiative – un progetto di diplomazia pubblica finanziato dall’Unione europea e destinato a collegare gli istituti di ricerca europei e indiani. Il volume fornisce al lettore ricerche originali e approfondimenti innovativi su come far progredire le relazioni UE-India e sarà una lettura essenziale per gli studiosi e i politici interessati al tema.
