About the topic: On one hand the end of cold war brought changes in the engagement and expectation of global community from Global Governance structures and institutions, on the other the world increasingly witnessed issues/challenges of transnational character. To address those international/multilateral cooperation became increasingly important. The history of India's engagement with world organisations including being a founding member of the United Nations, coupled with its growing economic and political profile with a strong leadership makes this juncture an interesting one. In 2017, Indian candidates won elections of three important world bodies namely International Law Commission (ILC), International Tribunal for the Law of Sea ( ITLOS) and most importantly the International Court of Justice. From one of the highest recipient of multi-lateral development aid, India has quietly transitioned into the role of provider as in the last three years it has given more aid to foreign countries than it has received.
