When New Delhi is set to be busy with its G20 presidency hosting G20 leaders in September, the capital will also see a premium Foreign Policy and International Security workshop by Usanas Foundation which will be held on 7 and 8 September, 2023, at the India Habitat Centre, New Delhi.

Many eminent diplomats, experts, policymakers, and army generals, including Amb. Anil Trigunayat, Former Ambassador to Jordan, Libya and Malta, Lt. Gen. Raj Shukla, UPSC member, Tanmoy Chakrabarty, Former Group Government Affairs Officers, Tata Sons Pvt Ltd., Abhijit Iyer Mitra, Senior Research Fellow, Nuclear Security Programme, IDSA, Kabir Taneja, Fellow, ORF, Dr Adil Rasheed, Author, Fellow, Counter Terrorism Centre, MPIDSA, and Prof. (Dr) Srikanth Kondapalli, among many others, will be giving lectures on the central theme of Current Trends in Foreign Policy and International Security.

The Usanas Scholar Program will encompass training modules on a wide range of themes, such as Chinese Communist Party, India’s Strategic thought and Culture, Rise of Global South and Economic rebalancing, Influence Operations, and War Doctrines, AI and Technology-driven Warfare, Misinformation and Disinformation Challenges and Terrorism, and Intelligence and Radicalisation. The modules will focus on developing critical thinking through a participatory model of learning and student engagement.

The workshop will cater to International Relations and International Security scholars of Bachelors, Masters, Doctoral, and Post-Doctoral levels, and mid-career professionals in the field of diplomacy, intelligence, and security. The workshop will also be immensely beneficial to media professionals, corporate leaders and individuals associated with global non-profit organisations and international governance institutions like the UN.

The workshop will also entail a special session involving interaction with the diplomats and domain experts to guide young scholars of international relations and security. Expert faculty guiding the fellows will include both practitioners and academics.

The purpose of this program is to expose Usanas Fellows to the fundamentals of new trends and dimensions of international relations and give practical exposure from people having their feet on the ground. In addition to help achieve a nuanced understanding of foreign policy issues, the participants will also get excellent networking opportunities with think tank professionals, the corporate sector, diplomats, and academics.

The workshop will also be contributing to foreign policy discourse and raise awareness as to how India can navigate through the ongoing geopolitical shifts and transformations and reclaim its leadership role in the new world order. The ongoing transitional phase in the world order presents immense opportunities for India.

Usanas Foundation aspires to prepare and train a cadre of skilled, informed, and motivated youth leaders in the field of International Relations and Security. The workshop aims to bridge the disconnect between the IR theoretical frameworks that guide India’s Foreign Policy and our civilizational legacy and wisdom in statecraft and diplomacy.

The organisation has made tremendous strides and has created a space for itself in strategic space and dialogue in India, breaking new grounds and navigating unchartered territories.
