Globalisation and South Asia: Responses and Alternatives

Krishan Gopal (Editor) Olive Peacock (Editor) B.C. Upreti (Editor)
Synopsis Globalisation, which has dominated the Post-Cold War International Order, is a comprehensive process with its wide-ranging implications for most of the countries of the world today. As a concept, globalisation is still debatable, largely because of the complexities of this phenomenon. Whether globalisation has to be viewed in terms of its historical continuity or as an exclusively post-Cold War process in difficult to ascertain. It is also confusing whether globalisation is an economic process or a socio-political process or a complex of all. Despite all encompassing confusions and complexities, globalisation has become an inescapable reality, particularly for the countries of the developing world because of their own internal socio-economic and political complexities. Like many developing countries the South Asian states have tried to respond to the process of globalisation. Whether it is possible to draw certain parallels in this regard is an important question. Globalisation has both positive and negative connotations. To what extent South Asian countries are capable to take advantage of the positive aspects and avoid the negative impacts? Is it possible to find out an alternative to globalisation? To what extent South Asian states are capable in forgoing an equilibrium between different dimensions of globalisation? These are some important issues of enquiry in the context of process of globalisation and nation states. The present volume includes studies focusing on the responses, capacities and capabilities of South Asian countries vis-a-vis globalisation. The studies focusing both on the region as a whole and the individual countries are included here to examine the above raised issues.
