South China Sea Dispute: An Assessment of Indias Response

Dr. Zafar Alam [5]

Abstract: This paper attempts to analyze India China relations with special reference to 'South China Sea' dispute. At a time when countries having border, land or water disputes with China increasingly uniting themselves against her and India itself has a serious border dispute with China (Business Today, 2017), would it be feasible for India to join the ‘Rising anti China Coalition’ for which China thinks is instrumented and devised by US to contain her rise in different sectors. The research tries to weigh up in Indian context, the costs and the benefits in either conditions of getting involved against China or remaining neutral in the fray. The research takes into account factors responsible for determining India’s approach in the anti-China coalition. History or Indian tradition of non-violence and being non-interventionist (Bandyopadhyaya, 1970) economic engagements with China, security concerns from the north-west and nuclear factor, BRICS Cooperation, Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), “Silk Road Economic Belt” and the “Maritime Silk Road”, The Bangladesh–China–India–Myanmar (BCIM) Economic Corridor etc have been seen in different ways while analyzing the India’s approach towards ‘Rising anti China Coalition’.
