With the projected increase in demand for UN peace operations worldwide, and the increasingly transnational nature of threats to human security — including climate change, terrorism, organized crime and armed conflict — there are opportunities for the UN and South Asia to develop stronger cooperation to address transnational security threats.
To that end, IPI's South Asia-related programming seeks to promote a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by the region, and better connect the UN community to regional research and policy networks through a series of policy research projects and by using IPI's convening capacity to advance informal dialogue among scholars, practitioners and diplomats.
