Analyzing Indo-Pak Relations Post-Pulwama Attack Using Game Theory

Chandrasekaran Mridul Bhardwaj  National Law University, Odisha. _________________________________________________________________________________
On 14th February 2019, when an Indian convoy comprising of Central Reserve Police were passing through the district of Pulwama[1] in Jammu & Kashmir, there was a suicide bombing in which a truck containing military-grade RDX explosives[2] rammed into the convoy thereby martyring more than 42 personals.[3] It was one of the biggest terrorist attacks that took place in the Indian soil and it was linked with Jaish-E-Mohammed, a group of Islamist militants, whom India believed to be backed by the Pakistani government in a conspiracy to challenge the Indian sovereignty.[4]

This created a tension between the India and Pakistan, which lead to them playing “the Chicken game”.The chicken game[5] is basically a game that is part of the game theory and is one of the most prominent examples of the usage of game theory and in finding the Nash equilibr…

The article thus attempts to highlight these effects by giving an overview into the liability arising out of it as well as the effects of the violation of int…

Responsibility to Protect (R2P) & Diplomatic Capital

Kritika Kaushik,
MA, Centre for Political Studies,
Jawaharlal Nehru University,
New Delhi.

Emerging in context of atrocities in Balkans, Rwanda etc., R2P commonly refers to the protection of populations from mass atrocities such as genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing. It further states that the international community has a responsibility to assist States in fulfilling this responsibility, including the collective use of force through the UN Security Council.  To understand this doctrine further, we need to navigate into the various dimensions of the same. The concept of the responsibility to protect drew inspiration of Francis Deng’s idea of “State sovereignty as a responsibility” which widened the scope of state sovereignty as including positive responsibilities for the state population’s welfare. This is quite different from how state sovereignty was imagined by the Treaty of Westphalia in 1648. Here state sovereignty is not just an entitlement that states …
