As a rapidly growing economic power, India’s role in global governance has come under considerable scrutiny. In this article we will trace the evolution of India’s engagement with global governance. Simultaneously we will evaluate the complexities of India’s approach to the structural, institutional and regulatory challenges facing the current global order as well as India’s approach to the challenges, constraints and opportunities to shape our regional order.

Global governance is a means to manage issues that cross national boundaries to create a fair and just world. It comprises a complex of institutions, policies, norms, procedures and initiatives to coordinate collective action on a global scale and address international challenges.
Global governance includes activities that transcend national boundaries at international, international and regional levels and are based on rights and rules that are enforced through a combination of economic and moral incentives.
