Jamia Millia Islamia’s, Centre for North East Studies and Policy Research, has launched a book on ‘Northeast India and India’s Act East Policy: Identifying the Priorities’. The book is an attempt to bridge the knowledge deficit that exists in our understanding of the Northeast India vis-à-vis the Act East Policy. Much has been discussed about this policy in the context of Northeast India. However, the existing writings seldom spell out the priorities of different states of the region, and how the policy is being pursued by the present government of the country. Through this book, an attempt has been made to answer several relevant questions on Act East Policy.
The book entitled as ‘Northeast India and India’s Act East Policy: Identifying the Priorities’ (edited by Prof. M. Amarjeet Singh), is published by Routledge, Oxon and New York (ISBN 978-0-367-25060-7(hbk)/978-0-429-28579-0(ebk) under the series Routledge Studies on Think Asia.
The Book is an outcome of a two-day conference on ‘India’s Act East Policy: Needs and Priorities of North East India and Myanmar’, which was organised at the Centre for North East Studies and Policy Research, Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi in collaboration with the Nehru Memorial Museum & Library, New Delhi. The conference drew participation by scholars and students from within India and abroad.
