Publication of Dr Jabin Jacob's Co-Edited book.



Dr Jabin T. Jacob, Associate Professor at IRGS has a new co-edited report out with Dr. Constantino Xavier of the Centre for Social and Economic Progress, New Delhi. The report asseses how China is becoming increasingly influential beyond just trade and other economic ties with India and its neighbours. Based on eight case studies by analysts and scholars from Bangladesh, Nepal, India and Sri Lanka, the report examines China’s growing role in a range of sectors in these four countries, including education, public diplomacy, technology, social media, civil society, party politics, religion, and governance. It is among the first systematic, case study and evidence-based analyses of China’s new methods and strategies of engagement with South Asia. Going beyond an India-centric perspective, the report also expands our understanding of how other South Asian countries perceive China and seek to promote their own interests and concerns.
