This book brings together disparate views on how to appropriately locate India in the contemporary international legal order. The contributions are also of historical value, as they analyse the contemporary situation as part of a historical trajectory. The essays seek to map India's practice and positions in the last six decades with regard to the respective fields they examine. At the international level, in many respects India has arguably been drifting from its traditional role as a trusted ally and proponent of the third world towards the pragmatism of self-interest, behaviour that often corresponds to that of the dominant players. In the last few decades, India has seemingly diluted its position as champion of third world cause, abandoning its leadership role to pursue a policy compelled by internal political and economic conditions, as well as the dictates of external forces. These developments are reflected in the country's positions concerning international law.
