One of every five people in the world lives in the countries of South Asia €“ Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, the Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri-Lanka. The problems faced by this population are so huge that they present a defining challenge to the core mandates of the United Nations as the global arena for problem-solving. These challenges range from economic development, environmental protection, food and water security, democratic governance and human rights, nuclear war and peace, inter-state and internal conflicts, and new security issues like AIDS and international terrorism. South Asia in the World develops a dialogue between academics and practitioners in a deeply divided region. It explores the potential for improvement in domestic and international efforts to alleviate the problems of South Asia and the role that the United Nations can play.
