India in the UN Security Council
India has evolved as the most serious contender for permanent membership in the reformed United Nations Security Council. Its ongoing tenure as a non-permanent member of the UNSC can be viewed as a test of whether it is a responsible power and offers a preview of its possible future policies in the main UN body. Even though India has strong demographic, economic and political arguments to support its aspirations, fulfillment of its goals depends on reform of the whole UN system. For the EU and Poland, engagement in a serious dialogue with India on UN reform could serve as the main leverage of bilateral cooperation.
