About GAIR

The Alliance School of Law in Bangalore is seeking submissions for the GAIR Newsletter’s first online edition (Vol. 1 Issue 1). It is a quarterly E-newsletter that is open access, peer-reviewed, and refereed. The goal of the GAIR E-Newsletter is to provide an academic forum for students, practitioners, journalists, and academicians to express, debate, and discuss current themes in International Relations and Global Affairs.

The newsletter is looking for works that are dynamic and interdisciplinary in nature, and that demonstrate a thorough understanding of the subject topic.


The central theme for the inaugural issue is Afghanistan Political Crisis and Rise of Taliban.  

The world is watching the situation unfold in Afghanistan following the Taliban’s political takeover. The resulting shift in international relations, as well as the UN’s response, are both major sources of concern for world leaders. Such a power transfer raises not only political, but also economic, security, and human rights concerns.

Sub themes:

  • Role of Security Council in Afghanistan Crisis 
  • Position of India with respect to Diplomatic ties in Afghanistan 
  • Impact of International ties after takeover of Taliban 
  • Human Rights and Taliban 
  • Defacto and Dejure Recognition of Taliban

  • Economic relations after takeover of Taliban
