Student: Stanislau Rezki

Supervisor: Sergey I. Lunev

Faculty: Faculty of World Economy and International Affairs

Educational Programme: International Relations (Bachelor)

Final Grade: 9

Year of Graduation: 2020

The aim of this research was to determine to what extent India's external environmental policy in the post-bipolar world can be considered as a soft power tool. To achieve the goal it was necessary to describe the main features of the "soft power" concept, its evolution, its relationship with environmental protection, as well as the resources existing in India. It was also necessary to track the evolution of India's negotiating position at major environmental conferences during the period under review, as well as to identify changes in approaches to India's environmental cooperation with other countries. As a result of the study, it was found that India's external environmental policy contributes to an additional increase in its soft power in relation to other developing countries, but does not have a similar effect in relation to developed countries. Nevertheless, the evolution of India's policy has a more positive impact on its perception in the developed world and increases its credibility.
