Abstract

Established in 2002 as an independent and dedicated unit under the term ‘Taskforce’ by the US State Department, e-diplomacy has widened its scope, simultaneous to the growth and spread of internet. While a few still believe that the significant evolution on Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) has not altered diplomacy intrinsically, there are many who see it as a generation shift, as social media tools, like Twitter, leading the stage. Rise of Narendra Modi, the 15th Prime Minister of India, to the helm of Indian politics brought into limelight the application of digital tools for diplomatic purposes, be it external affairs, defense, public relations, etc. This paper aims at bringing out an understanding of issues related to e-diplomacy from an Indian polity perspective. It tries to cover and extend the experiences of Indian politicians or offices making use of digital tools to serve diplomatic purposes, and the intricacies therein, citing various case studies.
