Dr. Amitabh Mattoo, Professor for International Relations at the University of Melbourne, in conversation with Taarush Kishore Jain, Strategic Consultant and Editor at the ISPP Policy Review on foreign policy implications of the Covid-19 crisis. They discuss the future of India-China and India-US relations, accountability for WHO, maintaining stability in Kashmir and India's position in the new world order.

The COVID-19 crisis has set in motion an unprecedented churn not only in India’s foreign policy, it has also affected international relations and world affairs at large. Managing China’s influence in the post-COVID world is poised to be a  challenge for the global community in the coming years. In order to meet this challenge, there is a need for concerted efforts to reform accountability frameworks for international institutions like the World Health Organisation (WHO). Further, emerging economies like India must start planning to attract investments that might move out of China in the near future.

For this, India must keep its borders with the country secure, engage more substantially with the United States and also maintain relative stability in Kashmir to not attract the ire of the global community. Dr. Amitabh Mattoo, Professor for International Relations at the University of Melbourne discusses all these issues in this podcast with Taarush Kishore Jain, Strategic Consultant and Editor t at the ISPP Policy Review.
