Sandeep Bhardwaj

Supervisor: Srinath Raghavan

Sandeep Bhardwaj’s research interest lies in post-Independence diplomatic history of South Asia and he wishes to examine Nehruvian India’s foreign policy towards the Third World (Southeast Asia, the Middle East and Africa).  For the last seven years he has been involved in historical research in India and abroad, which has made him very familiar with archival resources in India, US and the UK. He has worked closely with Srinath Raghavan, supporting him in three of his book-length projects. He has also worked closely with several other leading historians including Odd Arne Westad, Sunil Khilnani, David Engerman and Rudra Chaudhuri. In 2014, he was invited by King’s College London to present his research at India Institute where he was appointed UKIERI Scholar.  Sandeep obtained his MA in Social Sciences from University of Chicago. The title of his thesis was, “A Rationalist Explanation for Ceasefires: Why Belligerents Stop Fighting.” He completed his BTech from DA-IICT.
