Operationalizing the Indian Defence University

It is time to operationalise the Indian Defence University - The Hindu

Current Landscape:

  • Reports indicate that neighboring countries like Pakistan and China have established multiple universities for their armed forces.
  • However, India’s long-awaited Indian Defence University (IDU) remains unrealized, raising concerns about its absence.

Importance of Professional Military Education (PME):

  • The evolving nature of warfare necessitates continuous education and preparation for future security challenges.
  • A well-structured PME continuum is essential to empower officers to meet changing assignments and increasing responsibilities throughout their careers.

Historical Progress and Slow Development:

  • The idea of a Defence Services University was first proposed in 1967 by the Chiefs of Staff Committee.
  • In 1982, a Study Group emphasized the need for an apex educational body, leading to the concept of the IDU.
  • While ‘in principle’ approval was granted for the IDU in Gurgaon based on Dr. K. Subrahmanyam’s report, progress has been sluggish.

Existing System and Challenges:

  • India’s armed forces operate several world-class training and education institutions, yet they lack an integrated PME framework and a multidisciplinary approach to strategic thinking.
  • Affiliations with universities for degree courses are not optimal, highlighting the need for additional subjects relevant to national security and defense.

The Timeliness of the IDU:

  • Despite the establishment of institutions like the Rashtriya Raksha University (RRU) in Gujarat, the necessity of the IDU remains.
  • Delays in operationalizing the IDU hinder defense preparedness, strategic culture, and inter-service integration.
  • Urgent action is required to operationalize the IDU, implementing a forward-looking military education curriculum.

Conclusion:

The establishment of the IDU is imperative for India’s defense preparedness and strategic advancement. It is essential to expedite its operationalization to ensure a robust military education framework aligned with future security needs.

  • Al-Bashir formalized tribal militias as the Rapid Support Forces in 2013, ratified by Sudan’s parliament in 2017.
  • Protests erupted in 2018 over poverty, corruption, and unemployment, leading to military intervention in 2019 and al-Bashir’s removal from power.

Emergence of Militia-Dominated State:

  • The Rapid Support Forces emerged as a counterbalance to the armed forces, deploying fighters to key cities, border regions, and economic hubs.
  • Russia established ties with the Rapid Support Forces through the Wagner Group to secure access to Sudanese gold.
  • Way Forward:
  • Sudan requires international collaboration for reconstruction efforts.
  • It must establish a transparent, civilian-led government representing the populace and incorporating their voices in decision-making.
