Connectivity and Integration in South Asia

Mohanan B. Pillai (Editor) Adluri Subramanyam Raju (Editor)

The contributors to the volume focus on the problems faced by South Asian countries and suggest solutions to improve economic cooperation between countries. They examine the challenges to the region which include a low gross domestic product, disparities at various levels, extremism, insurgency, absence of collective identity and inter-state conflicts over boundaries that have resulted in instability and insecurity. Based on an international seminar, the papers discuss ways to reduce poverty, improve infrastructure to improve bilateral relations, and issues of connectivity and trade and cultural integration and diplomacy. Specifically viewing India's ties with Pakistan, Nepal, Myanmar and Bangladesh, they focus on regionalism in South Asia and the significance and ability of the SAARC to accomplish the goal of regional integration.
