This book is an important contribution to a comprehensive review of European Union and India relations. It seeks to provide an Indian perspective on its relations with EU and a stimulus of thought how they may be improved in future.
The European Union, which came into existence on 1 January 1993, is a major event in international political and economic relation and has caught the attention of the world. The collapse of the Soviet Union and the dramatic turn of events in Eastern Europe have significant bearings on North-South Relations as the countries of South undergo fundamental changes. Against this backdrop, the construction of the European Union and its impact on developing countries in the context of changing North-South relations provide an interesting agenda for research.
The process of construction of the Union involved radical changes in the economic, commercial, trade and external policies of the European Community. These changes, although mostly internal, would have significant implications for all other countries in relation to the community. The book first analyses issues in contemporary North-South relations. Then it examines the impact of EC integration on the developing countries in general and India in particular.
