India Quarterly

India Quarterly is a peer reviewed journal of international affairs. When launched in 1945, its focus was primarily on India and Asia. However, as India’s interests have expanded so too has the mandate of the journal to include submissions on varied themes that are likely to impact India’s global interests.

As the flagship publication of the Indian Council of World Affairs (ICWA), the India Quarterly aims to encourage scholars, journalists and other intellectuals to contribute original articles on matters concerning international relations and national foreign policies. It promotes objective analysis on themes of critical importance for understanding international affairs. Conceptually sound, empirically grounded and policy-oriented articles are particularly encouraged. Falling within its purview are regional and global concerns such as environmental issues, energy security, identity-centric conflicts and their international ramifications, cross-border movements of people and related concerns of human trafficking, gun-running, terrorist networking, migration of diseases, andglobal and regional political economy.

The opinions expressed in India Quarterly are those of the authors and need not necessarily be in conformity with the outlook of the ICWA. Apart from articles, the journal also features a book review section and often, commentaries.

This prestigious Quarterly is also indexed in 'SCOPUS', ‘International Political Science Abstracts’ and ‘ABC of Political Science’.
