This project seeks to develop an understanding of India’s role in the UN and the priority accorded to the UN as an instrument of Indian foreign policy in the Nehruvian era. While in New Delhi, India, I worked at two archives: the Nehru Memorial Library and Museum, which features records on Indian nationalists, industrialists, politicians, political parties, and associations, and the National Archives of India, a repository of the records of the Government of India from 1891 onwards. By drawing upon these materials, I attempt to devise an explanation for the impact of India’s bilateral relations with the superpowers of the time on its U.N. diplomatic activity.
