As the world changes, many scholars, analysts, and policy makers agree that while governments need to confront external threats, creating sustainable domestic environments is an imperative policy priority. In the post-Cold War period, several bilateral conflicts-including the nuclear tests of 1998 and the post-9/11 world in which South Asia has become a breeding ground for terrorist-continue to make India and Pakistan a pivotal region.

ABOUT Author


Rekha Datta is a professor and chair of the Department of Political Science and director of the Institute for Global Understanding, Monmouth University.

‘’Rekha Datta’s book is an important, theoretically grounded, and empirically rich attempt to deal with the nascent concept of human security in India and Pakistan. Even those work outside this emergent area of international relations will find this book to be thoughtful and provocative.’’
