Armed Politics and the State in South Asia
Grant Year: 2016
Paul Staniland will research and write a book that explores how states in South Asia are responding to the proliferation of armed groups and irregular conflicts in the region. He will build a database of the armed groups operating in Pakistan, India, and Myanmar and the policy responses that the respective governments have adopted toward these groups, in order to assess how well states are meeting these challenges to political stability and security.
