Overview for India's North-Eastern Region: Insurgency, Economic Development and Linkages with South-East Asia

The seven north-eastern states of India during the last six decades of isolation have braved enormous difficulties. Beginning with the impact of partition, liberation of Bangladesh, influx of people from outside and continuing conflicts based on caste, tribe, language, race and religion, there is also a flip-side to the bad governance and economic woes of the people of this region. Their geographical and cultural promiximity with the South-East Asian countries make the areas to be of enormous economic importance in the future. This book argues how the region's trade with various neighbouring countries if facilitated and encouraged, and if efforts are made for greater convenience in international trade through the simplification of economic activities such as movement of goods, people and services across borders, the region can blossom to its full potential. But for this, the center has first to realize the urgent need to 'open-up' than to 'lock-up' the area in order to provide 'security' to the people. One of the first studies of its kind, this volume highlights in detail the north-east's central position vis-à-vis Bangladesh, Myanmar, and the rest of South-East Asia.

  • A New Perspective for the North-East

    (More than year ago) By, A Reviewer

    I have been doing my ph.d on insurgencies in the north-east and did not find good books on trade and investment opportunities of the 7 sister states. However, this book is an excellent one. It gives a new perspective on the NE states' traditional linkages with South East Asian economies. The author Mr. Nishchal Pandey describes the relations of NE states with Thailand, Myanmar, Singapore and China. Indian policy planners and security establishment now need to move away from security centric discourse and embrace trade and investment aspect in order to solve the insurgencies. I really liked the book. Highly recommended to whosoever is interested on North-East issues.
