Asia and the Pacific
South Asia is a dynamic and complex region that presents the United States and the world with significant opportunities and challenges to global security, stability and human well-being. The region is home to India, the world’s largest democracy and a rising power with one of fastest growing economies. It is also includes governments struggling to maintain control of their countries, two nuclear powers that coexist in an uneasy and often tense relationship, and conflicts with al Qaeda and Taliban forces that have engaged U.S. and NATO forces.All of these factors make the region a subject of considerable strategic importance to the United States and the larger international community. Brookings scholars with deep expertise in the region are examining the complex and interrelated mix of national security, economic and development issues in South Asia.
