India–Israel Relations

  • Shubham Phophalia Gujarat National Law University, Gujarat, India


India and Israel established full diplomatic relations in the year 1992. Bilateral trade has grown from $200 million in 1992 to more than $7 billion in 2017. High level collaboration in Defense, Science, and IT reflects inter-governmental trust and a stable form of partnership. Israelis and Indians interact along many occasions as they traverse each other’s terrains. However, these exchanges find only peripheral reference in official disclosures and have received little scholarly interpretation. Over 40,000 Israelis visit India annually and 70,000 Indian Jews live in Israel, aside from other Indian community clusters. But what is the nature of India–Israel encounters socially, culturally, economically, and politically? Do they impact the meta-narrative of India–Israel relations? How various agreements, MOUs, inter-cultural programs including various exchange programs under the umbrella of the so-called Foreign Policy be better harnessed to boost bilateral relationships, etc., are some of the important issues which have been dealt in this research paper and the authors have tried to maximize their focus on the recent and current developments taking place in their partnerships, and especially the focus on Super Power has been kept in mind.
