This lecture will review a variety of paths that a country can take to engage with the global economic order. It will argue that India has opted for the “embedded liberal” path building on the work of Karl Polanyi and John Ruggie. The country has transitioned from the “structural conflict” mode towards an “embedded liberal” path. The lecture will review negotiations leading to India’s National Action Plan for Climate Change (2008), its performance in trade negotiations, and regarding vaccine diplomacy, to assess how robust is this path for the future of India’s emergence.
