Ever since its launch in February 2006, Indian Foreign Affairs Journal, a peer reviewed quarterly publication of the Association of Indian Diplomats has become an intellectually satisfying and analytically enriching forum for the examination of relevant but sensitive and complex issues of India’s foreign policy and relations. Such examination is undertaken by experienced decision makers, serious scholars and seasoned commentators.

The Journal remains true to its credo, publishing authors of widely divergent views, and at the same time, searching for unifying themes and principles in an era where these are especially hard to find. The Journal is thus filling a long-standing gap in the availability of insightful and credible.

Besides in-depth scholarly and policy-oriented articles, each issue of the Journal presents a Debate on one of the contemporary and contentious aspects of India’s foreign policy.

In addition, the Journal includes a special and unique section which brings out and preserves in  print, the hitherto unknown aspects of India’s diplomatic experience and policy initiative through its Oral History narrative, in the course of tête-à-tête with senior and highly experienced policy makers who have made decisive contributions in the evolution of the policy and its challenging issues. The Journal also reviews latest books on India’s foreign policy and its relations. Inevitably, articles published in Indian Foreign Affairs Journal shape the political dialogue for months and years to come.
