Mending Fences: Confidence- and Security-Building in South Asia

Synopsis

"Exploring the long history of conflict in South Asia, this book assesses the role of confidence- and security-building measures (CSBMs) in reducing tension. Utilizing a unique comparative framework, the contributors draw lessons for South Asia from the experiences of states in Cold War Europe and in the Middle East. Despite the significant historical, political, and geographic differences among regions, the contributors illustrate how the implementation of CSBMs elsewhere has important policy implications for limiting interstate conflict in South Asia."
