South Asia Regional Security 2025

From Idea to Reality? (Phase 3 Workshop)

NBR successfully partnered with the Institute of Peace and Conflict Studies (IPCS) for the phase 3 workshop in New Delhi, India, on November 8, 2011.

This final phase regional workshop built on discussions from the phase 2 effort—which focused on extrapolating the potential political, geopolitical, economic, and security implications of a hypothetical future nontraditional security cooperation framework for South Asia—toward envisioning how such a framework might come into being.

The purpose of the exercise was to engage participants in imagining a plausible future and, in the process, tease out the potential points of conflict and convergence through group discussion in order to encourage innovative and pragmatic solutions to the challenges confronting South Asia’s future.
