S Jaishankar Discusses Global Conflicts and Terrorism in a Globalized World

In a thought-provoking discourse at the Kautilya Economic Conclave in New Delhi, India’s External Affairs Minister, S Jaishankar, emphasized the far-reaching consequences of global conflicts and the evolving landscape of contemporary geopolitics. Jaishankar’s remarks shed light on the intricate interconnectedness of conflicts and terrorism in a world characterized by globalization and the limitations of containing their impact.

The minister pointed out that in today’s globalized world, the idea that conflicts and terrorism can be neatly confined within their immediate geographies is no longer tenable. He underscored the ripple effects of ongoing events in the Middle East, particularly in the context of the Israel-Hamas war, and highlighted the broader repercussions of various conflicts. Drawing parallels to the Russia-Ukraine war, he noted that regional conflicts have repercussions that extend well beyond their immediate regions.

Jaishankar did not shy away from addressing the enduring role of terrorism as a tool of statecraft. He described terrorism as a “less formal version” that has been honed and practiced for strategic purposes. He further emphasized that the seamless nature of our existence means that the impact of conflicts and terrorism cannot be contained within borders.

“The basic takeaway for all of us is that given the seamlessness of our existence, any expectation that conflicts and terrorism can be contained in their impact is no longer tenable,” Jaishankar asserted.

He also highlighted the economic aspects of this global interconnectedness but cautioned against underestimating the potential for radicalism and extremism to spread, comparing them to a dangerous metastasis.

Furthermore, Jaishankar discussed the evolving dynamics of world powers, stating that the unipolar world is a thing of the past. He explained that even the bipolarity of the United States and the Soviet Union has evolved into a more complex landscape. The emergence of numerous “next-run powers” with substantial influence, autonomous activity, and regional dominance has contributed to this complexity.

Regarding the United States and China, he suggested that a traditional bipolar world is unlikely to emerge due to the presence of other influential regional players. He cited the Middle East as an example where regional actors play a dominant role, limiting the space for external global players. This shift in influence is not limited to the Middle East but is also evident in Africa and other regions.

In conclusion, S Jaishankar’s address highlights the inextricable links between global conflicts and the ever-present challenge of terrorism in today’s interconnected world. His insights also underscore the evolving dynamics of world powers, emphasizing the role of regional actors in shaping contemporary geopolitics.
