This book analyses the tumultuous situation in post-republic Nepal, with spot diagnosis of the major issues facing the country such as federal structure, security sector reform, armed movement in the terai, and religious clashes that have wide implications for India and China. While there is no disagreement over the issue of state restructuring itself, New Nepal: The Fault Lines deals with possible spin-offs of the failure to address the questions of identity, ethnicity, language, religion, region, and culture in "New Nepal". Security sector governance, the structure of the political

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 113 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 address show India's global and regional foreign policy making has changed 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

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 3 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

The world after great power withdrawals by Shahid Javed Burki ( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Will the United States⁰́₉ pullback from Afghanistan, currently planned to be completed by the end of 2014, deeply affect the world? What would be its impact on the Muslim world, including the Muslim-majority countries of South Asia? These two questions are important for the making of public policy across the world because of the massive changes that are likely to occur once the United States has left the scene. Major large-power pullbacks have in the past led to the birth of new economic and political global orders. There is no reason why the same would not happen again this time

The 18th amendment Pakistan's constitution redesigned by Shahid Javed Burki ( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries 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
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
