India-Sweden Strategic Compass, Vol.2 No. 6 November-December 2023
January 16, 2024: The Stockholm Center for South Asian and Indo-Pacific Affairs publishes a bi-monthly newsletter, the ‘India-Sweden Strategic Compass’. The newsletter focuses on current affairs, highlighting Sweden and India relations, India-Nordic relations, EU-India relations, domestic developments in India, and relevant international updates.
How has been the India-Sweden ties in the year 2023? And, what does the future path look like for this progressive relationship in the year 2024 & ahead?
With multiple wars and conflicts raging in Europe and the Indo-Pacific – the protracted Ukraine war, the Hamas-Israel war, Azerbaijan’s swift military offensive in Nagorno Karabakh, and the military strife in Myanmar to name a few – there was little to cheer about this past year. Even as democratic governments around the world have been struggling to find ways to pursue cooperation and coalesce outreach, the interactions between India and Europe (as also the India-U.S. one) have been productive more often than not.
