India's African Relations: Playing Catch up With the Dragon

By Sanusha Naidu


Like China, Indias post-cold war foreign policy has been aligned to the principles of Non-alignment and South-South co-operation. Linked to the unilateral character of the post-cold war international order, India has pushed for a multilateral world order. And just as in the past, relations with Africa and the South are now based on shared mutual interests to fight against the inequities of the global order. This time directed against underdevelopment and poverty as a result of an unbalanced global economic system.
