Indian society is multifaceted to an extent perhaps
unknown in any other of the world-s great civilization.
Comprehending the complexities of Indian social structure
has challenged scholars and other observers over many
decades. The ethnic and linguistic diversity of Indian
civilization is more like the diversity of an area as
variable as Europe than like that of any other single
nation-state. Living within the embrace of the Indian
nation are vast numbers of different regional, social,
and economic groups, each with different cultural
practices. Particularly noteworthy are differences
between social structures in the north and the south,
especially in the realm of kinship systems. This book
provides deep insight into various dimensions of issues
relating to the subject.

This book outlines the national and international policy
processes that are currently underway to protect local
genetic resources and related traditional knowledge and
the challenges these initiatives have faced. In
particular these themes are addressed within the context
of the Convention of Biological Diversity and the
International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food
and Agriculture. The authors broaden the policy and legal
debates beyond the sphere of policy experts to include
the knowledge-holders themselves. These are the
-custodians of biodiversity-: farmers, herders and
fishers in local communities. Their experience in sharing
access and benefits to genetic resources is shown to be
crucial for the development of effective national and
international agreements. The book presents and analyzes
this experience, including case studies from China, Cuba,
Honduras and Nepal etc.

controversial and complex issues in any trade
negotiations. This book presents new insights into the
economics of ROO, critically evaluating the empirical
aspects, and providing fresh perspectives on complex
policy negotiations and implementation. The contributions
suggest new ways to design ROO to make them development-
oriented and facilitate trade, rather than ending up as a
protectionist tool to impede it. In doing so, the
analysis of the book relates to the current regional
economic co-operation processes in different parts of the
world, while focusing on India-s regional economic
engagements with other countries.
