Shifting Geo-politics in the Greater South Asia Region” is the latest analytical report by DKI APCSS professor Dr. Christopher Snedden.

The report serves as a primer on the greater South Asia region which is home to 1.7 billion people.  According to Snedden, this is a region of challenges and possibilities.  The report covers important historic events, economic achievements, interactions with each other and with the U.S. and China, as well as future trends and possibilities.

While fractious, one of the biggest challenges and opportunities is to develop South Asia into a strong, economically-unified region. To achieve this, states Snedden, “the nations of South Asia need to move beyond mistrust and old paradigms and engage with each other in meaningful and mutually-beneficial ways.”
