Economics of WTO plus: No to conflict and Yes to regionalism

Dawood MAMOON

Abstract


Abstract. The paper makes a case for effective regionalism in South Asia by developing such conflict mitigation strategies between India and Pakistan that exploit their proximity to global trade. The welfare enhancing measures for nation states become more startling when they not only invest in institutional development but also become an active part of the global village with regionalism as a viable means to achieve this objective.

Keywords. Trade, Institutions, Education, Regionalism, Conflict mitigation.
