In a world shaped by ties that traverse borders and countries increasingly facing transnational security issues, subnational diplomacy explores how political dynamics and relationships are shaped beyond capital cities. In this South Asian Voices and 9DashLine joint series, contributors examine how countries across South Asia engage in subnational diplomacy and the ways provincial governments, state leaders, and local populations influence foreign policy. From examining the deeply rooted historical connections between today’s nation-states, to discussing the role of diaspora populations, foreign missions, and cross-border communities, this series explores the diverse and interconnected ways subnational ties influence politics across South Asia.
