Corridors of Knowledge for Peace and Development
Jointly published by SDPI and Sang-e-Meel
Corridors of Knowledge for Peace and Development is SDPI’s principal contribution to policy-relevant, timely, and reliable research and analysis on key global sustainable development issues. Offering a big picture view through the eyes of leading policy and academic stalwarts from South Asia and beyond, the book addresses issues such as human capital; social exclusion; poverty alleviation; 4IR; unfair laws and legal systems; fiscal rules and regulations; transport corridors; a changing climate; ultra-nationalism; human rights and violence against women.
This collaborative effort of some 30 authors from 10 countries seeks to demystify these issues and chart a way forward, while explaining, as clearly as possible, the most pressing policy questions and the different policy positions that define them.
Our hope is that those actively involved in such debates – as thought leaders, change agents, and strategists – will be able to draw on the penetrating reflections and learnings to help generate new ideas that spur action towards the common goal of achieving sustainable development and regional connectivity for the economies, ecosystems and communities of South Asia and beyond.
