Corridors of Engagement

Swaran Singh (Author) Anita . (Editor) Ors. (Editor)

Asia has re-emerged as a useful case study for exploring the complex relationship between pursuing economic development through trans-state linkages and promoting political agendas through securitisation. New routes and in the process new partners have been sought for creating opportunities for rethinking traditional ways of conceptualising partnerships. However, logistics is as much about institutional setups and the actual corridors through which it operates as the capacity of movement to create new assemblages of power, create identities but also shape the ‘microgeographies’ of everyday life along these corridors of engagement. Mobilities, flows and spaces therefore become significant in understanding the imperatives within which logistics functions as also the occasional resistance and sensitivities that it encounters. Corridors of Engagement engages with this interface of logistics and mobilities in various Asian spaces to underline the significance of these engagements in a wider global context.
