Greater Balochistan; A Quiet Frontier set to Explode

Paper No. 6197                                  Dated 15-Nov-2016

Guest Column by Alexander Murray

As infrastructure projects in Greater Balochistan come to be, governments across South and Central Asia should prepare for what will most likely turn into the region’s next hotbed of violence. Baloch across the region must be included in regional governments’ decision making processes or investors should prepare for the rural ethnic Baloch to thrust their projects into the dustbins of history.

Afghanistan Stability 2015 and the Pakistan-US-China Triangle

Paper No. 5989                        Dated  17-Aug-2015

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Afghanistan’s stability in 2015 is far from the offing despite the Pakistan-United States-China triangle’s flawed convergence of interests in co-opting the Taliban for Afghan reconciliation post-US military involvement exit from Afghanistan, oblivious to the reality that the Taliban is not part of the solution but the major problem itself.

Afghanistan 2015: India should keep off the Strategic Muddle:

Paper No. 5961                         Dated 29-June-2015

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Afghanistan in 2015 presents a complex strategic muddle for which India is neither politically, strategically, nor militarily equipped, to compete with the growing strategic convergence of Russia-China-Pakistan interests despite inherent self-contradictions among the three, and the unfolding Afghan-ISIS confrontation.

India’s Foreign Policy Radar: Imperatives to Delete Pakistan and Afghanistan

Paper No. 5885                               Dated 04-Mar-2015

By Dr Subhash Kapila

Pakistan for decades and now Afghanistan lately are strategic dead-weights and non-performing assets in terms of Indian foreign policy and Indian security interests.

Pakistan and Afghanistan may be strategic assets for United States national interests in South West Asia and that by itself is no reason for India to adopt American foster children in the region.
