National security is paramount for an all inclusive development. Along with a holistic approach in place, there is an urgent need to first recognise the challenges to national security of the country. National Security Challenges: Young Scholars’ Perspective – a tribute to Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw from the youth of the country – primarily deals with India`s national security challenges from a hardcore, predominantly traditional security point of view.

The main aim of the book is to develop strategic thinking amongst the youth of this country. To provide a suitable platform to the university students, CLAWS has initiated an unprecedented pan-India essay competition – Field Marshal Manekshaw Essay Competition (FMMEC). The book is the outcome of an overwhelming response to the competition over past two years, and 12 select essays have been compiled, edited, and published.

Dealing with wide range of subjects from conceptual understandings, threats and challenges emanating from technological advancements, to learning from national, regional and global experiences; the book provides a fresh approach to the subject. It also gives a sneak peek into what the youth of India feels about national security in the form of policy recommendations.

To boost the morale of the young authors and university students, the book carries messages from Hon’ble Raksha Mantri, Hon’ble National Security Advisor and Chief of the Army Staff.
