India is an emerging player on the global stage, thanks to its growing economy and its strategic role in Asia as a balancing power. The EU cannot therefore ignore the rise of India, especially given its own aspirations to become an effective global actor – a status it has so far not managed to attain.
The author of this CEPS Policy Brief argues that the EU and India need to move beyond the economic and bureaucratic limitations that currently characterise their relations and to work towards a reconciliation of different priorities that would be of benefit to both partners.
