Description

India’s pledge towards Afghanistan’s reconstruction process has now reached to the tune of 1.2 billion US$. Nevertheless human security continues to be a haunting problem in Afghanistan even today. The tremendous loss of lives, the continued food insecurity, the displacement of approximately six million people and the disabling of three million, in addition to the severe reduction in social services, continue unabated. It is exactly seven years since the Bonn Agreement was signed. What are the ground realities today? How far have the objectives been met with? How secure is Afghanistan today? What are the major security concerns and how to address these? These were some of the issues which were deliberated at the international conference and have been captured through articles meticulously presented by international and national scholars of repute. This book will be of immense use to the researchers, academicians and the policy makers.
