Description

On retirement from the Indian Foreign Service as Secretary to the Government of India in the Ministry of External Affairs, the author was awarded a Fellowship to work on SAARC: A Search for New Dimensions. This publication embodies the work done by him as a Nehru Fellow.

South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation is a new field of study in international relations. Found in 1985, the organization itself is just a decade old, quite a short period of time in the context of the millennial history of the Indian subcontinent. An association of seven countries of the region, viz, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, the Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, it cuts across their national frontiers in order to carve out a regional personality based on their civilizational bond and their desire to promote cooperation for their common weal.

The primary purpose of this study has been a search for new dimensions for SAARC in order to make it an effective instrument for the purpose it has set to itself.
