For long, the fight against insurgency has been seen mainly as a domain of military forces, and not of the police. The vast literature on counterinsurgency, both historical and contemporary, therefore, tends to focus solely on combat strategies, organizational issues, and politico-military relations. However, national leaders and governments, in a variety of settings, are beginning to grasp the important role played by a neutral, competent, and reliable police force in quelling insurgencies. But there remains an inexplicable dearth of scholarship on this dimension of internal security. This vo... View more info

The Manmohan Singh-led Coalition government at the Centre from 2009 to 2014 has been clinically analysed by focusing attention on its domestic and foreign policies. The yardstick of performance and non-performance of a Government-in-power has been applied here and such a stock taking is undertaken in this study. The UPA-II can claim some achievements, however, generally its policies and programmes failed to carry conviction with the ruling classes and also the absolute majority of voters who censored it in the 16th Lok Sabha elections.

The tenure of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) regime (1998-2004), led by the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) saw India`s rise in international prominence, especially in terms of nuclear transparency, a tilt towards the US, regional pragmatism, and use of realpolitik. On all these accounts, the BJP regime often significantly contrasted to those of the Indian National Congress.The practices and ideas that the BJP espoused continue to impact upon India`s security policies today.

The success of rural development programmes depends on the participation of the people for whom the programmes are meant. The 73rd Constitutional Amendment, hailed as revolutionary in the history of decentralisation in India, provided a number of opportunities or the marginalised groups to enter into the local decision-making bodies, and participate in planning and implementation of development process. Since the mere constitutional changes are not likely to bring the desired changes, other actors such as NGOs need to build the capacity of the marginalised groups so that they can effectively p...

World over decentralisation has been viewed as an instrument for meeting aspirations of local people. India has embarked on this process since later part of 1950s, but decentralisation got a new dimension by way of 73rd Constitution Amendment Act in 1993. Though the Constitution Amendment is considered a landmark of sorts for strengthening the panchayati raj institutions, yet, as reflected from the field study and analysis, neither from the point of people's participation, nor from the perspective of capacity of PR institutions to deliver in the rural areas, does the Act prove to be effective....
