This book examines the major armed conflicts in South Asia. The
articles study conflict management, look at the direction the armed
conflict is likely to take and provide a set of alternative
measures that could be pursued by the actors.
Designed as an annual series, the articles provide a brief
historical sketch of the emergence of armed conflict, outlining its
various phases. This volume examines the various armed conflicts in
South Asia in 2009 in Afghanistan, FATA and NWFP, J&K,
North-East India, Nepal and Sri Lanka, and sectarian and Naxalite
violence in Pakistan and India respectively. The volume also
includes an exclusive chapter on the continuing story of suicide
terrorism in Pakistan.
This important collection discusses India 's geo-strategic
importance and its common borders with its neighbours; the
psychological and economic costs of violence and the problem of
refugee migrants; treaties, memorandums and ceasefire agreements
signed over the past several years across countries; the role of
the United Nations and other peacekeeping forces; and the future of
failed and failing states.
