Summary

This book maps the convergence of governance and connectivity within Asia established through the spatial dynamics of trade, capital, conflict, borders, and mobility. It situates Indian trade and governance policies within a broader Asian and global context.

Focusing on India’s Northeast, in particular on India’s Look and Act East Policy, the volume underscores how logistical governance in the region can bring economic and political transformations. It explores the projected development of the Northeast into a gateway of transformative cultural interaction among people, just as the Silk Road became a conduit for Buddhism to travel along with musical instruments and tea.

Comprehensive and topical, this book will be useful for scholars and researchers of political studies, international relations, governance studies, development studies, international trade and economics and for think tanks working on South and Southeast Asia.
