Ausführliche Beschreibung:

India has long aspired to be a great power. However, until the 1990s it lacked most of the material attributes to even approximate the role of a great power. Since its economic reforms of the early 1990s, its subsequent emergence as a de facto nuclear power and its willingness to shed some of its prior ideational commitments its prospects of achieving great power status has significantly improved. However, it is still sandbagged with major problems of rural and urban poverty, it faces significant social cleavages and it finds it difficult to achieve policy consensus and remains hamstrung with major infrastructural defects. Unless it can forthrightly overcome these material and ideational hurdles it is hard to see how it will successful rise to great power status.
Sumit Ganguly is a Distinguished Professor of Political Science, and holds the Rabindranath Tagore Chair in Indian Cultures and Civilizations, at Indiana University, Bloomington. He is also a Senior Fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (elected 2017), and a recipient of the Humboldt Research Award (2017), to be hosted by the Department of Politics, SAI, Heidelberg University. A specialist on the contemporary politics of South Asia, Professor Ganguly's research spans security, ethnic conflict, democratization, foreign policy, and international politics of that region. He is the author, co-author, editor, or co-editor of over 20 books on the region.
