Oxford University Press

Looks at the different levels of change in the countries of South Asia (Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka) since the end of the cold war, and attempts to determine how, and to what extent, the end of the cold war has been a long‐term determinant in defining the region's foreign and domestic policies. The different sections of the chapter address: the security dimension (including consideration of the effect of Soviet withdrawal from Afghanistan); democratization; and economic liberalization and regional cooperation.

Keywords:   Bangladesh, Bhutan, cold war, democratization, domestic policy, foreign policy, India, liberalization, Nepal, Pakistan, regional cooperation, security, South Asia, Sri Lanka
