Increasingly economically integrated with one another and the worldwide economy, events in South Asia can have global impact. In addition, South Asia is one of the most heavily militarized regions on the planet with numerous on-going conflicts that involve, or have the potential to draw in, outside powers. This collection of multi-disciplinary essays examines the economic causes and consequences of military conflict in South Asia from a variety of perspectives embracing fiscal, social, strategic, environmental and several other dimensions. It also analyses the numerous separatist conflicts that continue to afflict the region as well as inter-state rivalry between the great powers.--"@en ;
