Online book presentation: Energy and Peace in South Asia
November 5, 2020 - 11:00-12:30
SASNET welcomes you to a digital presentation of Mirza Sadaqat Huda‘s latest book Energy Cooperation in South Asia: Utilizing Natural Resources for Peace and Sustainable Development.
Here is an excerpt of what Routledge writes about the book:
“Regional cooperation has been substantiated by academics and multilateral development banks as one of the most viable solutions to South Asia’s crippling energy crisis. However, three decades of national and regional efforts have failed to develop a single multilateral energy project or foster high levels of bilateral cooperation. Using data collected through extensive interviews with policymakers in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Nepal, this book identifies the specific roadblocks to energy cooperation – including domestic politics and the failure of leadership on multiple levels – and evaluates how these political challenges determine regional interactions on energy securitisation, environmental cooperation and human rights. Huda then undertakes case studies on four transnational energy projects to highlight specific policy recommendations to overcome these challenges, suggesting planning mechanisms through which the significant issue of energy cooperation in South Asia can be addressed. “
