PROGRAMME RATIONALE

  • For decades, India and Africa have cooperated in trade and development partnerships, higher education, military and political relations.
  • Traditionally, Africa was viewed as a source for natural resources but in contemporary times, Africa has acquired a heightened level of interest from the global economic, geopolitical and socio cultural agendas.
  • First, from the economic perspective, Africa has emerged as an attractive investment destination from investors from across the globe including Africa, the US, the EU and the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) countries.
  • Second, from the geopolitical perspective, Africa has transitioned to a place of significance in the multipolar world wherein new actors like China, India and Russia seek to expand their diplomatic footprints;
  • Third, from the socio-cultural perspective, wherein aspects like diaspora engagement and social movements have brought the spotlight on Africa. India, in particular, has had a long history of socio-cultural and economic ties with the African countries. Indian investments have grown manifold in the last few decades and geopolitically, India recognizes the importance of the African continent.
  • Therefore, it becomes imperative that the Indian scholarship on international relations should respond to the opportunities that this presents by creating academic programmes whereby Indian students study and understand the African continent.

PROGRAMME OBJECTIVE

  • To provide a comprehensive understanding of the African continent (GA I)
  • To strengthen analytical & critical thinking and communication skills (GA IV)
  • To encourage inter- and multidisciplinary research enquiry (GA I)
  • To develop holistic understanding of and participation on the SDG Agenda (GA I & III)
  • To inculcate cultural sensitivity and he ability to work in multicultural environment (GA II)
