China’s reaction to these developments looks like a customary statement. Most likely, this change will have limited impact on India-China relations.

Within a span of one week two astonishing electoral victories have dominated the world’s media headlines.




IAIE’s Integrity in Sports Initiative

There is a strong correlation between a healthy body/mind and a healthy nation. Australia as a sport loving nation encourages an outdoor lifestyle in the community to achieve a work-life balance and also connect physical and mental fitness with nature and sports.




Ashutosh Misra, Healing an Angry Nation's Wounds, The Pioneer, 24 February, 2019.

India must realize the significance of national-level unity that has come in the form of collective anger sparked by the unfortunate loss of 41 Central Reserve Police Force brave hearts recently

Ashutosh Misra, Democracy in the Dragons Show, 18 February 2018

Since there are only 4,000 people of Chinese ancestry in India, China faces a demographic disadvantage in pushing its influence operations in India, unlike in the US and Australia, which have a large Chinese diaspora and have no history of direct military conflict with the country, making them more susceptible




Ashutosh Misra, India’s Hour of Reckoning, 25 September 2016

India should learn to pay back in kind by employing the bleeding through a thousand cuts strategy. Pakistan has been able to hurt us constantly by building operational networks and human assets in our country. India must come out of its moral policy predicaments and be realistic




Ashutosh Misra , Battle for India’s Soul, 14 August 2016

For Pakistan, it is the ‘problem of Kashmir’, an unfinished agenda of Partition. India views it as a ‘problem in Kashmir’; considers the State an integral part of the country and cites cross-border terrorism as the main problem. And until the two definitions converge, a lasting solution is unlikely




Ashutosh Misra, Modi-fying India-Australia Ties, 25 May 2014

New approaches and shifts now are inescapable and Australia too looks at India to herald a new era in bilateral cooperation. Under the Modi Government now, New Delhi will have to move beyond the tried and tested idealism-pragmatism conundrum, which had hitherto plagued the UPA’s foreign policy


Institute for Australia India Engagement (IAIE)  represents a vibrant conglomeration of academic experts, research analysts, policy-practitioners, corporate professionals, and sport leaders in Australia and India, who have left an indelible mark in their respective fields with their writings, performances and achievements over the years. They are the leading lights who share a common and strong yearning for deeper mutual understanding and engagements between Australia and India and complement the objectives of Australia-India Strategic Partnership.

IAIE’s uniqueness rests in the rich perspectives of its members, shaped over the years through lived experiences in both countries, and first-hand knowledge of socio-political culture, language, history, bureaucratic processes and government functioning. This uniqueness inspires our motto: the deeper we understand each other, better we engage.

Engagements

NATURAL RESOURCES AND ENERGY

India is the third largest energy consumer in the world and is heavily dependent on imports to meet its energy requirements.

EDUCATION AND TRAINING

Demographically, India is a young country with around 44 percent of the people under the age of 25 which can become an enormous asset for its growth and progress.

DEFENCE, POLICING AND SECURITY

The Australia India Strategic Partnership of 2009 lays strong emphasis on bilateral cooperation in the field of defence and security.

INDO-PACIFIC

The term Indo-Pacific has featured in academic writings, media discussions and policy debates since 2007.

SPORTS & WELLNESS

As the 21st century inches towards the conclusion of the second decade, our increasingly busy lifestyle, professional and personal stress, food habits and addiction…

BUSINESS & TRADE

It would not be an exaggeration to say that following the dip in bilateral relations in the late 1990s, business and trade engagements became the cornerstone of bilateral ties.

MULTICULTURAL

In the 1993 issue of Foreign Affairs, Samuel P. Huntington hypothesised that “the fundamental source of conflict in this new world will not be primarily ideological or primarily economic [but]…cultural”.

Our Objectives

IAIE enshrine the provision for establishing nodes or chapters in other states and territories in Australia and India to achieve greater institutional outreach, ideational synergy, community involvement, stakeholder interactions and policy impact.
