“Jindal Journal of International Affairs (JJIA) is a welcome addition to the family of international affairs journals. It will bring valuable new perspective to the study of contemporary issues of international relations.”

Richard Caplan
Professor of International Relations & Director, Centre for International Studies (CIS), University of Oxford


“At a time when knowledge in international affairs is becoming narrow and excessively contested, the Jindal Journal of International Affairs has arrived with an ambitious mandate of joining in the national conversation about world affairs, widening the space for a distinct Indian voice that is global and eclectic. This inaugural edition contains articles that address contemporary international problems with open minds and problem-solving intent. I congratulate the Jindal School of International Affairs and commend this new publication to students, scholars and practitioners of world politics.”

Dr. Shashi Tharoor
Former Under-Secretary-General, United Nations & Former Minister of External Affairs, Government of India


“Since decades, India has been a major player in global politics, yet it did not have a top international affairs journal. Filled with fine scholarship from Jindal Global University, Indian scholars and policy makers, and researchers from abroad, the Jindal Journal of International Affairs takes on the challenge with a first issue that is policy relevant, intellectually stimulating, diverse, and fresh. The study and the practice of international affairs needed this: a promising new journal from one of the world’s greatest democracies, economies, and, international political actors. I wish you success.”

“A fascinating and important experiment – the JJIA promises to straddle scholarly and policy approaches to international affairs, blend global and local perspectives, support, explain and critique Indian foreign policy. I look forward to this new venue for scholarly excellence – new ideas from a rising world.”

David Kennedy
Manley O. Hudson Professor of Law & Director, Institute for Global Law and Policy, Harvard University


“The Jindal Journal of International Affairs is an outstanding effort to produce a world-class journal on foreign policy and international relations. If the inaugural issue is good evidence, the Journal will quickly establish itself as the leading forum for intellectual debate on issues that impact on India’s engagement with the world.”

Amitabh Mattoo
Professor of International Relations & Director, Australia India Institute, The University of Melbourne

“True to its global character, the O.P. Jindal Global University is to be congratulated for launching the Jindal Journal of International Affairs. Like the Jindal School of International Affairs, its new journal is raising Indian scholarship in international relations to a level commensurate with India’s role as a global power. All who are engaged in global policy and the study of international relations will benefit from reading the insights and analysis contained within its pages.”

“India’s rising importance in international affairs and the growing inter-linkages between geoeconomic and geo-strategic issues requires a response in the form of high quality academic journals originating in India. The Jindal Journal of International Affairs promises to fill this requirement superbly. Its global scope, and commitment to upholding academic values emphasizing objectivity and diversity of well-reasoned views, evident from the Inaugural Issue, represent an important milestone in developing a robust policy community on international affairs in India.”

Mukul G Asher

“The diverse range of themes is welcome and will be of great value in educating a new generation of Indians about the increasingly complex, globalized world in which their country will play such an important role. I look forward to the contributions your journal will make in analyzing contemporary international affairs from the vantage point of India and beyond. Again, congratulations on this important undertaking.”

“The launching of Jindal Journal of International Affairs by Jindal School of International Affairs within six months of its establishment proves what a dynamic leadership and strong commitment to scholarship can produce within a short period. The entry of the Journal into the world of periodicals is a welcome development with considerable potential to influence the discourse on international affairs. It deserves appreciation, encouragement and involvement.”

“The Jindal Journal of International Affairs, like the university it emanates from, is an excellent initiative that will help in understanding and strengthening India’s increasingly important role in international affairs. Scholars and policymakers alike will find some interesting, and sometimes surprising, views on a very diverse range of issues of importance. I wish the journal well in this important endeavour.”

Dr. Dhananjayan Sriskandarajah
Director, Royal Commonwealth Society & Interim Director, Commonwealth Foundation


“The Jindal Journal of International Affairs clearly meets a critical need for a high-quality “bridging” journal that addresses, with an Asia focus and perspective, a broad spectrum of critical global policy and development issues. As a result the journal will act as a catalyst for the initiation of policy dialogues and actions for the generation of constructive and actionable solutions on issues of global to sub-national importance. Particularly important is the journal’s focus on the rapidly expanding role of India as a major component of global governance and development.”
