Abstract:

India and the US have had rather inconsistent relationship, in spite of being leading democracies in the world. Post 911 however, the relationship between India and the US has improved significantly but, irritants remain. The thesis looks at the possibility of cooperation between both the countries to build a world order that is symbiotic and beneficial to both. The research is extremely significant as India starts asserting itself on the world stage and the US faces the leadership challenge from other emerging powers of the world. The thesis uses historical representation and trend analysis for researching the topic. This thesis will analyze the national interests of India and the US to understand the congruence and conflict of national interests. The thesis will also consider the past and present relationship of India and the US and their strategic behavior in international politics. Based on the results and contextualizing the evolving world order, the thesis will contemplate the options for cooperation and progression of relationship between India and the US. The thesis will conclude proposing the most beneficial option.
