Transnational Gas Pipelines: Global Context, Indian Experience
Professor Gulshan Dietl of the School of International Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, has served as the Chairperson, Centre for West Asian and African Studies and Director, the Gulf Studies Programme at her University. Her areas of teaching and research are domestic developments, foreign policies and security issues in the Gulf and West Asia. She has been a Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence at the Mount Saint Mary College, Newburgh, New York (1993-94), a Guest Research Fellow at the Copenhagen Peace Research Institute (1998-99) and a Visiting Professor at the University of Kashmir (2004).
A gas pipeline is the result of a specific agreement between the concerned parties. The agreement could be conditional, time-bound and mutually beneficial. It could also reflect the relative power balance between the parties; have asymmetrical impact on each of them; and be prone to adjustments/disruptions with changing times. The pipeline politics could be excruciatingly long-drawn and often kill the most sensible and mutually beneficial constructions. At times, it could lead to fruitful compromises and eventual positive consequences. And those consequences may also have a spill-over effect in areas of co-operation between/among the parties. The Indian policies through the long time-span of deliberations over the Iran- Pakistan-India pipeline are particularly illustrative in this regard.
