Prof. Subrata K. Mitra: Bhutan and Sino-Indian Rivalry: the Price of Proximity

Asian Survey recently published Prof. Subrata K. Mitra’s (former head of the department of Political Science, SAI)  co-authored with Srikanth Thaliyakkattil article on ‘Bhutan and Sino-Indian Rivalry: the Price of Proximity.’ Asian Survey 58(2): 240-260. The article points to how the military standoff between Chinese and Indian troops in the disputed territory of Doklam brought forward the foreign policy dilemmas of Bhutan and its search for an optimal strategy toward its two neighbouring big powers. This paper discusses Bhutan’s attempts to balance its overwhelming dependence on India with the necessity of normal diplomatic relations with China.
