The geopolitics of many Asian countries revolves around the Himalayas. With state policies having clear and definite impact on both traditional and non-traditional security threats, it becomes imperative to understand the politics of the Himalayan region. Himalayan Watch as a part of the website ‘Science, Technology and Security Forum’ intends to serve as a platform for experts from India and around the world to express their views on issues of politics and security in the Himalayan region. With the emergence of new technologies driving the way countries design their security infrastructures, Himalayan Watch also attempts to understand the interface between security and technology in the region, with a particular emphasis of its impact on India’s security framework.
