Description

This book examines India’s Look East policy and its ramifications within a broader framework of development of global logistics and governance. India’s Look/Act East policy was developed for bridging Southeast Asian nations through Northeast India. The volume brings together various themes like cartographies of connectivity in the Asian context; logistics and the reshaping of global governance; role of Bangladesh in India’s Act East; the city of Kolkata and its ports; the spatial dynamics of trade, capital and conflict; social governance in Nagaland and Manipur; borders, mobility and India’s northeast; to converge various elements of this new connectivity within India’s logistic visions and shows the increasing significance of infrastructural alliances in Asia.

Comprehensive and topical, this book will be useful for scholars and researchers of political studies, international relations, governance studies, development studies, international trade and economics and also for think tanks working on South and Southeast Asia.
