Dr Bhumitra Chakma
Senior Lecturer, Director of the South Asia Project and Director of Postgraduate Studies (Research and Taught Programmes)


The book traces the origins and evolution of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation and explores what it tells us about the dynamics of regionalism in regional international relations. Through the perspectives of neorealism, institutionalism and constructivism, the book charts the limits of meaningful cooperation in South Asia and illustrates how regional cooperation might be strengthened in the future.
