Prospect for the QUAD: Views from India and Taiwan

Since its revival in 2017, QUAD, i.e., Quadrilateral Security Dialogue has ushered in a new conversation among the Indo-Pacific states. China’s assertiveness in the region has not gone unchallenged, and multiple actors have become more vocal and decisive against Beijing’s disregard of international order and the rule of law. In this issue, contributing authors indulged in discussing the importance of India as a QUAD member and how the grouping should have a consensus about Taiwan Question. Indian policymakers are encouraged to shed their reluctance and develop their 'unique' approach to make security cooperation with Taiwan a reality.
