An Indian Critique of U.S. Export Controls

Abstract

Although Orbis’s mission is to publish articles dedicated to advancing the American national interest, the editors believe the following article, which provides an Indian perspective on US. policy, merits an exception. Provocatively, the author contends that U.S.-inspired export controls on technology are unfair and ineffective and are spurring India towards self-sufficiency in the development of missiles and space-launch vehicles.
