- Pub. Date:
- SAGE Publications
This book examines the role of ethnic 'kin states' in ethnosecessionist conflicts in South Asia using comparative case studies, both historical and contemporary. The author looks at how they respond to co-nationals across international boundaries and challenges the conventional wisdom that kin states act primarily as allies or friends. He provides a theoretical framework for understanding their role and then tests it against five major case studies to look at the differences in motives, responses, policy differences and consequences.
