The geopolitics of energy in South Asia by Conference on Geopolitics of Energy in South Asia( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Energy security has become a central concern for all the countries in the Asian region and the search for sufficient sources of energy to fuel economic growth has drastically influenced relations among the South Asian countries as well as their respective relations with their neighbours China, Myanmar, Iran, and Afghanistan. The recent nuclear deal between India and the US is also indicative of how energy and power politics are linked and how these new inter-linkages underlie relations between states. This book aims to give a South Asian perspective on the geopolitics of energy, with a central focus on India. The chapters show India's global and regional foreign policy ... in light of India's search for energy and how this is affecting the relationship on a global level between India and the US, as well as on a regional level between India and the other Asian countries. The book also offers views from Pakistan and Bangladesh, as well as how this shifting reality is affecting relations between India and Southeast Asia."--Provided by publisher

Afghanistan presidential election 2009 : developments since the fall of the Taliban by Shahid Javed Burki( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper looks at the evolving situation in Afghanistan resulting from the presidential election held on 20 August 2009, particularly at some of the preliminary indications of what appears to have happened while the formal announcement of the outcome is awaited. The hope that the people will give a clear indication of their preferences was not realised. The country seems headed towards a breakdown of the social order essential to govern a multi-ethnic state. It appears that the hope that the election would contribute to political progress in South Asia is proving to be untrue

The Lokpal Bill : an opportunity for the government and the economy by S Narayan( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

India's much-anticipated Lokpal Bill (designed to set up an ombudsman) was introduced in the Rajya Sabha (upper house of parliament) on 29 December 2011, but the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government had to beat an ignominious retreat as it could not gather enough numbers in the house for the passage of the bill. Earlier the bill was in fact passed by the more powerful Lok Sabha (lower house of parliament), but both houses are now adjourned. It is possible that the government may send the bill and all the suggested amendments to a parliamentary committee for consideration before reintroducing it in the next session of parliament
The Naxalite/Maoist movement in India : a review of recent literature by John Harriss( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper reviews recent writing by and about India's Maoists, much of it from the pages of the Economic and Political Weekly, which has been the most important forum for informed reporting and commentary. An account is given of the recent history of the Naxalite/Maoist Movement, and of the ideology and tactics of the Communist Party of India (Maoist). Particular attention is paid to the findings, both of the few social scientists who have undertaken field studies and human rights activists who have had direct contact both with party cadres and village people amongst whom they move. These illuminate the relationships between the revolutionary movement and the people of those areas in which the Maoists have a strong presence and highlight the contradictions to which their commitment to armed struggle gives rise

India-China border parleys : new 'signs' of walking the talk by P. S Suryanarayana( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The problem-solving mechanism of negotiations between the Special Representatives of India and China over their intractable boundary dispute has stayed course since 2003 when the process was agreed upon. Now, 50 years after the Himalayan war between these two major Asian neighbours, they have reaffirmed commitment to seeking a fair, reasonable, and mutually acceptable settlement of the basic dispute. Right now, there are two simple but significant signals that China and India, increasingly recognised as rising powers on asymmetric trajectories, are beginning to walk the talk. One, the two countries have not allowed a current issue of dissonance to disturb the peace process. Two, they have compiled a report on the progress made in their negotiations so far

The 18th amendment : Pakistan's constitution redesigned by Shahid Javed Burki( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper first provides a quick overview of the situation in Pakistan and then briefly examines the history of constitution-making in the country, suggesting that the tendency towards having a highly centralised system of governance has deep historical roots. It will then discuss the 18th amendment, focusing on both the process used for arriving at a consensus among different political parties on the substance of the amendment and then moving on to analyze its content. Finally, using experiences of other countries, the chapter will examine how effective the amendment to the constitution will be in bringing about effective decentralisation and providing services to the people for which the government must take full responsibility
