Creating Momentum: Today is Tomorrow

Jointly published by SDPI and Sang-e-Meel

This evidence-based anthology comprising of 16 thematic chapters is unique because it has something to offer people from all walks of life. South Asian Policy Makers, especially those within Ministries of Trade and Commerce, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministries of Water, Power and IT, will find the book useful as it addresses the interface between economic and political agendas in building peace through regional cooperation on water and energy problems of South Asia and bilaterally as a whole. It also extends the discussion to include challenges and instruments that other dyads and regions have experienced and are employing to build peace. Local Government Officials can look at the more meso and micro realities that impact their economies, especially in terms of basic services delivery to citizens from Pakistan, India, Nepal and Bangladesh.  For Policy Practitioners in Pakistan, this book seeks to break from the common rhetoric and focuses the debate on what is possible economically and what is necessary politically to move discussions forward about education and languages.  For University Researchers, this book provides a tool box of examples that university lecturers on literature, gender studies, religion and climate change can incorporate into curriculum to broaden the scope of studies for students to more than just what is covered by Euro and Amero centric studies. Last but not least, South-based Students will gain a sense of what realities exist across the South and what has/has not worked for various regions – again, building capacity and directing a sense of vision as to what models are working and which ones need refinement.
