The article presents the analysis of India positions on key global governance issues. The analysis has been carried out on the basis of the G20 documents and data from national sources (laws, national programs, leaders’ statements etc). The research identifies Indian approaches to economic, geopolitical, societal, environmental and technological risks which determine its positions in G20 and other international institutions.Most of the global risks are important for India, as it is one of the most influential emerging economies. However, Indian national authorities tend to put an emphasis on addressing domestic problems, in particular social and economic inequality, infrastructure deficiency and natural disasters risks, to ensure the dynamic development of the national economy and improve the well-being of people. As a result, global risks of different clusters are equally important for India, in contrast to other countries, which consider addressing economic risks as a top priority. Therefore, India is interested in being engaged not only in the G20 with its focus on financial and economic issues, but other international institutions, such as BRICS.The analysis demonstrates that global risks considered by the Indian government to be the most relevant for the country include: food security, fiscal imbalances, corruption, international conflicts, extreme weather conditions, nuclear safety and some other risks. The importance of societal risks for India is currently low. However, it is likely to grow in future along with continuing demographic changes.The study is implemented within the project of the Russian International Affairs Council and International Organizations Research Institute National Research University Higher School of Economics “Enhancing Effectiveness of Russia’s Participation in G20, G8 and BRICS”.
