Associate Professor of International Relations at the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, attended the 8th annual India Security Workshop at the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for the Advanced Study of India (CASI).

The workshop spearheaded by Prof. Devesh Kapur also celebrated the 25th anniversary of CASI with the publication of a special issue of India Review on “Indian Security Strategy” to which Miller (co-authoring with Prof. Kate Sullivan de Estrada, Oxford University) was invited to contribute an article.

The article, “Continuity and Change in Indian Grand Strategy: The cases of nuclear non-proliferation and climate change,” argues that what are termed as fundamental transformations in interest-driven grand strategies should in fact be seen as strategic policy innovations that lead to both, nuanced continuity and change in foreign policy.

Manjari Chatterjee Miller works on foreign policy and security issues in international relations with a focus on South and East Asia. She specializes in the foreign policy of rising powers India and China. Her book, Wronged by Empire: Post-Imperial Ideology and Foreign Policy in India and China, argues that the bitter history of colonialism affects the foreign policy behavior of India and China even today. She is interested in ideational influences on foreign policy and conceptions of state security. She is currently working on rising powers and the domestic ideational frameworks that explain their changing status.
