Northeast India and Its Neighbourhood

Heading East

For nearly 50 years, India’s northeast region was known for assertions of ethnic independence of numerous communities and the scale of violent anti-India insurgencies. In the past two decades, however, ceasefires and peace talks have taken hold and replaced armed conflicts for the most part. Yet, social tensions remain high in several parts, with outbursts of sectarian and ethnic violence. As the current government embarks on an ambitious programme of infrastructure development across the region, several political uncertainties have cropped up, which could impact internal stability in the northeast and affect India’s ability to influence its eastern neighbours. The chapter is divided into two broad sections: the first briefly examines the political and economic linkages of the region, including the armed challenges to India. The second addresses contemporary issues of governance, growth, and stability while making a set of specific and overarching recommendations for policy change.
