INDIA AND AFRICA IN COOPERATIVE RELATIONS

V.S. Sheth

Indian policy towards the African continent has to be based on an appreciation of contemporary global and state-level conditions, and the history of past relationships between India and Africa. Today, there are 53 nation-states in Africa and any policy framework for the whole continent will have to concern itself with macrolevel issues. Besides placing India’s Africa relations in a multidimensional time perspective, this chapter attempts to find commonality in the crises affecting India and African states to identify common areas of cooperation, and to draw up a policy framework towards African continent in the next millennium.
