South Asia has an image of being a protracted conflict-ridden region where many interstate conflicts persist without any settlement. Yet, there is no denying the fact that conflicts have con-currently created opportunities and pressures for peace; various bilateral and multilateral attempts at peacemaking have coexisted with the conflict process itself, but their success is limited in some cases. The South Asian states accept this reality; breakdown in peace process does not undermine their interest in conflict resolution. This point is reflected and underlined in this volume. The volume brings together a host of experts to analyse competing interests of the South Asian states leading to interstate conflict formation and examine theri various attempts at conflict containment and resolution.
