Advance Praise for India’s G20 Legacy

India’s G20 Legacy: Shaping a New World Order is an eloquent examination of the scale and scope of the diplomatic achievements and material outcomes of India’s G20 Presidency of 2023. The depth and deftness of the consensus-building and cooperation that India was able to mobilise in an uncertain world is the common strand that runs across this book’s engaging and scholarly chapters written by contributors of the highest calibre. Together, they unequivocally make the case that G20 2023 heralded the emergence of a rising power which seeks to unify a fissiparous world.
