Act East and India's North-East

"This volume captures the essence of India's transition from Looking East to Acting East in the context of the (NER) and the opportunities and the limitations that it brings with it. A paradigm shift in policy making in consultation with the people of NER and not through the prism of security concerns could make the `North-East to be the gateway to South-East Asia'.

The chapters in this volume will give an overview of India's Act East Policy from economic and strategic perspective and enumerate on issues and areas whereby the North-Eastern states can effectively contribute to India's Act East Policy. The book will interest researchers and students of politics and economics and particularly those concerned with India's NER."
