INDIA AND GREAT POWERS G.W.CHOUDHRY PDF

The Congress of Vienna by Jean-Baptiste Isabey , Different sets of great, or significant, powers have existed throughout history. An early reference to great powers is from the 3rd century, when the Persian prophet Mani described Rome , China , Aksum , and Persia as the four greatest kingdoms of his time. Lord Castlereagh , the British foreign secretary , first used the term in its diplomatic context, in a letter sent on 13 February "It affords me great satisfaction to acquaint you that there is every prospect of the Congress terminating with a general accord and Guarantee between the Great powers of Europe, with a determination to support the arrangement agreed upon, and to turn the general influence and if necessary the general arms against the Power that shall first attempt to disturb the Continental peace. These five primary participants constituted the original great powers as we know the term today. Of the five original great powers recognized at the Congress of Vienna, only France and the United Kingdom have maintained that status continuously to the present day, although France was defeated in the Franco-Prussian War and occupied during World War II. After the Congress of Vienna, the British Empire emerged as the pre-eminent power, due to its navy and the extent of its territories, which signalled the beginning of the Pax Britannica and of the Great Game between the UK and Russia.

The Congress of Vienna by Jean-Baptiste Isabey , Different sets of great, or significant, powers have existed throughout history. An early reference to great powers is from the 3rd century, when the Persian prophet Mani described Rome , China , Aksum , and Persia as the four greatest kingdoms of his time. Lord Castlereagh , the British foreign secretary , first used the term in its diplomatic context, in a letter sent on 13 February "It affords me great satisfaction to acquaint you that there is every prospect of the Congress terminating with a general accord and Guarantee between the Great powers of Europe, with a determination to support the arrangement agreed upon, and to turn the general influence and if necessary the general arms against the Power that shall first attempt to disturb the Continental peace.

These five primary participants constituted the original great powers as we know the term today. Of the five original great powers recognized at the Congress of Vienna, only France and the United Kingdom have maintained that status continuously to the present day, although France was defeated in the Franco-Prussian War and occupied during World War II.

After the Congress of Vienna, the British Empire emerged as the pre-eminent power, due to its navy and the extent of its territories, which signalled the beginning of the Pax Britannica and of the Great Game between the UK and Russia. The balance of power between the Great Powers became a major influence in European politics, prompting Otto von Bismarck to say "All politics reduces itself to this formula: try to be one of three, as long as the world is governed by the unstable equilibrium of five great powers.

Some, such as the United Kingdom and Prussia as the founder of the newly formed German state , experienced continued economic growth and political power. These countries seeking to attain great power status were: Italy after the Risorgimento era , Japan during the Meiji era , and the United States after the Reconstruction era. By the dawn of the 20th century, the balance of world power had changed substantially since the Congress of Vienna.

It formed in and consisted of the five Congress powers plus Italy, Japan, and the United States, representing the great powers at the beginning of the 20th century. During the decision-making of the Treaty of Versailles , Italy pulled out of the conference because a part of its demands were not met and temporarily left the other three countries as the sole major architects of that treaty, referred to as the "Big Three".

However, the Council began with only four permanent members — the United Kingdom, France, Italy, and Japan — because the United States, meant to be the fifth permanent member, did not ratify the Treaty of Versailles , thus preventing American participation in the League. Germany later joined, but left along with Japan, and the Soviet Union joined. Roosevelt, and Winston Churchill meeting at the Cairo Conference in Since the end of the World Wars, the term "great power" has been joined by a number of other power classifications.

Foremost among these is the concept of the superpower , used to describe those nations with overwhelming power and influence in the rest of the world. It was first coined in by William T. Fox [48] and according to him, there were three superpowers: the British Empire , the United States , and the Soviet Union.

Regional powers are those whose influence is generally confined to their region of the world. France and the United Kingdom maintained technologically advanced armed forces with power projection capabilities and maintain large defence budgets to this day. Yet, as the Cold War continued, authorities began to question if France and the United Kingdom could retain their long-held statuses as great powers.

Great powers at peace Edit According to Joshua Baron, a "researcher, lecturer, and consultant on international conflict", since the early s direct military conflicts and major confrontations have "receded into the background" with regards to relations among the great powers.

Baron highlights that since World War Two no other great power has been able to achieve parity or near parity with the United States, with the exception of the Soviet Union for a brief time. This unique period of American primacy has been an important factor in maintaining a condition of peace between the great powers. As evidence, Baron outlines that since the Cuban missile crisis during the Cold War, these influential Western nations have resolved all disputes among the great powers peacefully at the United Nations and other forums of international discussion.

During this approximately year time frame, on average, at least two great powers were fighting one another in each and every year. They are also the only state entities to have met the conditions to be considered " Nuclear Weapons States " under the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons , and maintain military expenditures which are among the largest in the world.

For example, sources have at times referred to China, [53] France, [54] Russia [55] [56] [57] and the United Kingdom [54] as middle powers. Following the dissolution of the Soviet Union , its UN Security Council permanent seat was transferred to the Russian Federation in , as its successor state. The newly formed Russian Federation emerged on the level of a great power, leaving the United States as the only remaining global superpower [nb 3] although some support a multipolar world view.

Japan and Germany are great powers too, though due to their large advanced economies having the third and fourth largest economies respectively rather than their strategic and hard power capabilities i. Some analysts assert that Italy is an "intermittent" or the "least of the great powers" , [76] [77] while some others believe Italy is a middle or regional power.

This is most notable in areas where the European Union has exclusive competence i. Anyway these remain largely with the member states of the European Union , which includes France, Germany and, before Brexit, the United Kingdom referred to collectively as the " EU three ". Cohen asserts that India is an emerging power, but highlights that some strategists consider India to be already a great power.

Robinson already regard India as a major or great power. There are however few signs that reform of the Security Council will happen in the near future. In relation to great powers, he makes the following points: The United States is still preeminent but the legitimacy, effectiveness, and durability of its leadership is increasingly questioned worldwide because of the complexity of its internal and external challenges.

A sequential ranking of other major powers beyond the top two would be imprecise at best. If we distil from this description of great power attributes and capabilities a list of criteria, it is clear why these four powers dominate the international security debate. The possession of superior military and economic capabilities can be translated into measurements such as military expenditure and GDP, and nowhere are the inherent privileges of great powers more visible than in the voting mechanisms of the United Nations Security Council UNSC , where five permanent members have an overriding veto.

The top ten countries ranked on the basis of military expenditures correspond almost exactly with the top ten countries ranked on the basis of GDP with the exception of Saudi Arabia which is surpassed by Brazil. Notably, each country with a permanent seat on the UNSC also finds itself in the top ten military and economic powers.

When taken as the sum of its parts, the EU scores highest in terms of economic wealth and diplomatic weight in the UNSC. This is followed closely by the US, which tops the military expenditures ranking, and then Russia and China, both of which exert strong military, economic, and diplomatic influence in the international system.
