Flåten: India Elects: what are the implications for the country’s foreign and security policy?


  • Security policy is important in this year’s election. This is mainly due to the recent tensions in Kashmir.
  • India’s two largest parties, the Congress Party and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), have differentapproaches when it comes to responding to terror attacks from groups based in Pakistan. The BJP has a lower threshold for applying military force against Pakistan.
  • The two parties also seem to differ when it comes to India’s approach to alignments, particularly with Japan and the United States.
