Postfrontier blues : toward a new policy framework for Northeast India /

de Baruah, Sanjib (aut.)
Collation: 1 vol. (ix-84 p.) : ill. ; 24 cm.Collection: Policy studies, ISSN 1547-1349 ; 33Édition: Washington, D.C. : East-West Center Washington, 2007.ISBN: 9781932728606; 1932728600.Contenu: This issue of Policy Studies proposes a democratic institution-building agenda that is sensitive to the particular dynamics of change in this "postfrontier." Rather than describing and actual condition, the concept of a postfrontier is a tool for imagining an alternative vision of change. Taking on the task of directly addressing these context-specific challenges, policy-making for a postfrontier could be the foundation for a radical reorientation of Indian policy toward the region. As an illustration of the postfrontier policy paradigm, this study proposes an alternative to the ethnic homeland mode: multilevel citizenship both of India and of a state--not unknown to federal systems. Instead of an exclusively ethnic principle of defining effective local citizenship multilevel citizenship could introduce a civic principle and give the right to define the rules of inclusion and exclusion to territorially defined political communities. Such a provision could be extended to all states of the regionContient: Executive summary -- Introduction -- Northeast India: rebel country -- A policy impasse: conterisurgency, ethnic homelands, and developmentalisatism -- From frontier to postfrontier: dynamics of change -- Postfrontier and its discontents -- Toward and alternative policy framework -- ConclusionSujet RAMEAU: Conflits sociaux Inde (nord-est) | Conflits ethniques Inde (nord-est) | Développement économique Inde (nord-est) | Social conflict India, Northeastern | Ethnic conflict India, Northeastern | Conflict management Government policy India, Northeastern | Land use Government policy India, Northeastern | Economic development Government policy India, NortheasternType de document: OuvrageLangue du document: anglaisPays d'édition: Etats-Unis d'Amériques
