This is a subject that has been extensively dealt with by scholars of the region and beyond.We have selected the aspect of ‘Inclusive Development’ as our focus area. Although most countries in South Asia are experiencing satisfactory economic growth, it is evident that a large number of people are marginalized and are not included in the process sharing the benefits of development in the economic, social and political spheres.
SAPRI will undertake research with a view to identifying the links between marginalization, exclusion of some groups and the rise of violent political movements and conflict

The conclusions of the conference will be taken forward through research, dissemination via the media and regional workshops. SAPRI will also engage in advocacy among political leaders and the nongovernmental sector
