“Synergetic Thinking for the Absence of Multilateralism in South Asia” is a new publication available on Niice, the Nepal Institution for International Cooperation and Engagement and Nepal Node of The Millennium Project . The publication is by Asanga Abeyagoonasekera, Sri Lanka and SAFN Nodes, Jerome C. Glenn, CEO of the Millennium Project, and and Josh Bowes (NIICE Commentary 8476).
As India’s population of 1.428 billion will pass China’s 1.426 billion this April 2023, perceptions toward India and China will change. India’s strong regional leadership and growing economy – will it become a world leader acting like many others throughout history playing zero-sum geopolitical power competitions? Or could it lead to the transition from zero-sum power games to future forms of synergetic relations?
If the world continues to play zero-sum power geopolitics, it seems continuing wars in one form or another is inevitable for our future. The authors discuss the concept of synergetic relationships in relation to Taiwan, China, and the US and to India and the United States or China, and the role of Sri Lanka to potentially develop international synergy.
