Engagement and Development: India's Northeast and Neighbouring Courtiers

C. Joshua Thomas (Editor)
Synopsis With the paradigm shift from state-centricism to interdependence and global cooperation, the Indian state has been sensitized about the geo-economic potential of its Northeastern Region (NER) as its gateway to Southeast Asian Countries. India’s Look east Policy, introduced in the early nineties, is, therefore, aimed at gradual integration of the NER with thriving market across the borders, and thereby, opening up to the eme4rging opportunities in the Southeast Asia. The NER, because of its geographic location cradled by five Asian countries –Nepal, Bhutan, Tibetan –China, Myanmar and Bangladesh, has natural geo-economic advantages to become the economic bridgehead of South east Asia. This book earnestly attempts to deepen the understanding of issues that the Northeastern region of India is faced with calls for accelerating the engagements of the neighbouring countries –Balgladesh, Bhutan, China, Myanmar and Nepal –and opening of the boarders for trade and people to people contact, which will be beneficial both for India’s Northeastern region and its neighbouring countries. It seeks wider readership cutting across the academia, policy makers, diplomats and the northeast watchers.
