The Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) since its formation has emerged as a prominent platform to enhance cooperation among its members in the shared Eurasian space. It aims to promote regional collaboration and cooperative solutions to shared challenges through consensus.

India became a member of the organisation in 2017 and chaired it for the first time in 2022-23. Under the theme of ‘Towards a SECURE SCO’, India’s effort was to further enhance interactions at all levels and promote understanding through dialogue and cooperation. In this context, Indian Council of World Affairs organised an ‘International Conference on Shanghai Cooperation Organisation: Reconnect ~ Rejuvenate’ in March 2023 which looked at enhancing cooperation among the SCO Member States, Observers, and Dialogue Partners. The present publication is a collection of presentations made by the experts at this conference.

The publication brings to the reader a collection of views on SCO and on regional dynamics from diverse perspectives. It offers suggestions and recommendations for further strengthening of cooperation among SCO countries. The book will be of interest to the academic community as well as practitioners of diplomacy seeking to sharpen their understanding of Eurasia and related developments.
