GP Short Notes

"The “Insights” section aims to keep our audience informed and updated on contemporary developments in world affairs. We attempt to do this through brief reflections and trend analysis. This initiative is short and reader-friendly with a brief presentation of facts, short background and a quick analysis.

Sections of these viewpoints go as a part of our Global Politics weekly roundup called “The World This Week” sent in the form of an e-alert. If you would like to receive these Alerts as and when published, kindly send an email to subachandran@gmail.com.
