South Asian leaders have made it a priority to tackle key regional issues such as poverty, environment degradation, trade and investment barriers and food insecurity, among others. This book considers the leadership of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) and the interaction with civil society in the process of South Asian regional cooperation and integration, and discusses how the emerging urgency in the provision of regional public goods provides an excellent opportunity to add to the successes in South Asian regional integration. The book explores civil society's role in regional and economic integration in South Asian industries, trade and services, and the importance of regional public goods such as food security for future integration efforts. It concludes that there are a few successes on which future cooperation and integration in South Asia can be built and where engagement with civil society could be productive, and that these success stories are sector specific - for instance, in industry and trade sectors where cross-border activities have been established within the framework of a South Asia Free Trade Agreement (SAFTA). However, a greater number of success stories are required at the sector level to serve as building blocks for further regional cooperation and integration. This highly original book will prove a fascinating read for academics, students and policy-makers across a diverse range of fields including: Asian studies, development, economics and regional and urban studies.

Renaissance of Asia

Renaissance of Asia

Asia's rise is a restoration of the past, not a revolution. This book is a must-read for anybody interested in the economic development of Asia.

We are familiar with Asia's “re-emergence”. A recent study by the Asian Development Bank, for example, notes that by 2050 Asia's per capita income would rise six-fold to reach Europe's levels today. Also by then Asia's share of global GDP would have doubled and Asia would have regained the dominant economic position it once held some 300 years ago before the industrial revolution.What is less well-known is that during the previous eras of globalization when Asia was prosperous, Asia was also regionally integrated and globally connected. During the roughly one and half century of colonial period, the 19th and the first half of the 20th centuries, Asia was divided and fragmented.This unique book argues that now led by the economic dynamism and “re-encountering” between China and India we are witnessing Asia's “re-emergence” and “re-integration” or the “Renaissance of Asia”. Asia's prosperity is rising. Also, as in the bygone eras, Asia's integration within itself and the global economy is intensifying, only it is now driven by market-oriented production networks and economic policies. Asia is starting to be “re-centered” as trade and investment relations between South Asia and East Asia surge. Asia's rise is a restoration of the past, not a revolution. This book is a must-read for anybody interested in the economic development of Asia.

Today, policy makers in both developed and developing countries are pursuing regionalization as a means to achieve easier market access, economies of scale, and welfare gains. South Asia Trade and Energy Security explains how regional economic cooperation in trade and energy security could help facilitate the economic transformation of the region, reducing poverty and expanding production. Currently, intra-regional trade in South Asia is constrained by tariff and non-tariff barriers. A fully- functional free trade area as envisaged in the South Asian Free Trade Area agreement has yet to be realized. This book explains the current patterns and limitations of energy trade between countries in South Asia, and how the growing demand for energy could be met by working closely with energy rich Iran, Burma, and Central Asian countries. Cross-border cooperation between India and China, Chinese investment in Tibet and Xinxiang, and water relations are also discussed. Policymakers, geopolitical strategists, and academics working in Asian Studies will appreciate this detailed analysis of how globalization and regional cooperation in trade and energy are playing a transformative role in South Asia's economic development.
