This chapter uses the European Union (EU) and United States (US) documents as a backdrop representing in rhetorical terms different approaches to international security, and analyses the approach taken by India within this context. It seeks to situate Indian state perspectives on security and conflict resolution within the extensive international debate on the US and EU security strategies. The chapter focuses on external threats by other states and on threats to India's territorial integrity than other major states. It utilizes the 2002 and 2003 documents issued by the US and the EU. The US issued its National Security Strategy (NSS) in September 2002 just after the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. 'A Secure Europe in a Better World', the European Union Security Strategy (EUSS) agreed by the European Council on 12 December 2003, is in many ways a self-conscious attempt to respond to the US NSS of 2002.
