Srimal Fernando (SF):  Dr. Sreeram Chaulia tells us about yourself?

Sreeram Chaulia (SC): I am a Professor and Dean at the Jindal School of International Affairs, O.P. Jindal Global University, in Sonipat, India. Trained as a political scientist with a PhD from the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, I am an opinion columnist for Indian newspapers - The Economic Times and The Asian Age- on world affairs and a commentator on international current issues on radio and television.

I have authored three singly written books and one edited volume. I’m basically an eclectic foreign affairs buff and operate in both the sub-fields of International Relations (IR)— International Security and International Political Economy— and do not confine myself to the study and scholarship of any single region. Lately, though, I have focused more attention to foreign relations and geopolitics in Asia. 

I’ve also worked as a civilian peacekeeper in the war zones of Sri Lanka and the Philippines and have been a guest of the governments of Mexico and Iran for the G-20 and the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summits.
