India's explosive economic growth and emerging power status make it a key country of interest for policymakers, researchers and scholars within South Asia and around the world. But while many of India's threats and conflicts are strategized and discussed extensively within the confines of security studies, strategic studies and conventional international relations perspectives, many less visible challenges are set to impact significantly on India's potential for economic growth as well as the human security and livelihoods of hundreds of millions of Indian citizens. Drawing on extensive research within India, this book looks at some of the a€˜hidden risksa€™ that India faces, exploring how a broadened scope of what constitutes a€˜riska€™ itself holds value for Indian security studies practitioners and policymakers. It highlights several human security risks facing India, including the inability of the worlda€™s largest democracy to deal effectively with widespread poverty and health issues, resource depletion and environmental mismanagement, pervasive corruption and institutionalized crime, communal violence, a protracted Maoist insurgency, and deadlocked peace processes in the Northeast among others. The book extracts common themes from these seemingly disparate problems, discussing what underlying failures allow them to persist and why policymakers heavily securitize some political issues while ignoring others. Providing an understanding of how several lesser-studied risks can pose potential or actual threats to Indian society and its a€˜emerging powera€™ growth narrative, this book is a useful contribution to South Asian Studies, International Security Studies and Global Politics.Manual scavenging was stipulated illegal in 1993 and therefore schemes had to be put in place to ensure wet ... mortality at 42 deaths per 1, 000 live births, though lower than in rural areas, continues to be unacceptably high (IIPS 2006). ...
