India's Moment & the Poverty Veto: A Dual Perspective"



  Dec 27, 2023

‘India’s Moment’ and the ‘Poverty Veto’




In the book ‘India’s Moment,’ Mohan Kumar delves into the concept of the ‘poverty veto’ and its implications for India’s role in global negotiations. Here’s an overview:

1. Understanding ‘Poverty Veto’ in ‘India’s Moment’: Mohan Kumar introduces the term ‘poverty veto’ to describe how the extensive poverty in India (with about 500 million citizens living in poverty) significantly restricts the country’s negotiating capacity on the international stage.

2. Impact on India’s International Role: This constraint is evident in various global discussions, be it WTO negotiations, climate change talks, or responses to international conflicts like the war in Ukraine. India’s policy decisions in these arenas are heavily influenced by the need to address domestic poverty issues.

3. Solution Proposed in the Book: Kumar suggests that mitigating this ‘poverty veto’ is crucial for India to have a more assertive and flexible stance in global affairs. This can be achieved by substantially reducing the poverty levels, aiming to lower the count from 500 million to around 100 to 150 million people.

‘India’s Moment’ thus highlights the interplay between domestic socio-economic challenges and foreign policy, underscoring the need for India to address its poverty concerns to enhance its global influence and negotiating power.
