Book synopsis/description:

While the armed conflicts in the recent years have become bloodier in South Asia, the peace process could not be sustained for various factors. Initiating a peace process is easier than to sustain it. In the last few years, a series of peace processes have been initiated in South Asia in Pakistan, Kashmir, Nepal, India's North East and Sri Lanka. The presence of numerous actors, role of civil society, space and rules of bargaining, Lack of bargaining tools, independent inputs or the lack of it, level of external support all these factors play an important role in the sustaining the peace processes.

The above two factors continuing armed conflicts and failing peace processes, make it imperative to initiate an organized, long term but independent study of the armed conflicts and peace processes in South Asia. A database on armed conflicts in South Asia is essential for such a studies. Institute of Peace and Conflict Studies (IPCS) propose to create such a database on armed conflicts and peace processes in South Asia.

This book is a primary part of this endeavor and is published as an annual on the various conflicts in Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. The following case studies would form the core essays of the annual Waziristan, Balochistan, Jammu & Kashmir, India's Northeast, Naxalites in India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. In future, the study would also cover armed conflict in Afghanistan.
