India and the European Union

Second updated edition

India and the European Union are partners in a world that is undergoing rapid change. The need for cooperation based on trust, includes the desire for greater exchange of information and permanent contacts and dialogue between the partners. In publishing the book India and the European Union, the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung has enabled eminent personalities from the European Council, the European Commission and the European Parliament to share their policies as well as their insights about the EU institutions. The Indian perspective of the India-EU relations is presented by the Union Minister of External Affairs. The Prime Minister of India commemorated the publication with a message. The book India and the European Union is intended as an indispensable compendium of the major European institutions and as a praxis-oriented handbook for establishing contacts with European players.
