This paper discusses the origins of India’s foreign policy and argues that it is rooted in its emergence as a nation-state. India’s first prime minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, had a strong influence on India’s foreign policy in the early years after India achieved independence from British colonial rule.

This included its relations with China with which it had a war in 1962 and still has a border dispute. But India needs to improve relations with China for both political and economic reasons. The paper offers a Constructivist analysis of the identities and interests that have shaped India’s foreign policy over the years, as well as China’s foreign policy, and how they have helped or hindered these two countries in maintaining good relations with each other.
