Raisina Files is an annual property of ORF, a collection of essays that engage and provoke readers on key aspects of the changing global order that will implicate an emerging Asia. Each essay stresses how the larger debates playing out around the world are pertinent to Asia as a geography and a pivot in today’s international order. Arguments and analyses presented in this collection, which firmly put India and Asia at the nucleus, will be useful in taking the intellectual discussion forward and enunciating policy suggestions in a rapidly evolving Asian and global context.
The 2017 edition brings together thinkers outside of India to comment ‘looking in’ on themes that traverse a wide terrain: from the economic and security to the developmental and social, The new, emerging nuclear, maritime and outerspace landscapes are discussed; an Asian model of globalisation and the future of jobs debated; security implications of skewed gender ratios and emerging social contract in Asian nations explored; transnational jihad deconstructed; and energy and digital politics scrutinised.
