    Title: Sigur Center Asia Report, Issue 39: Energy Security in Asia and Eurasia: Are States Choosing Nationalism or Globalism?
    Author: Sigur Center for Asian Studies
    Description: Asia’s need for energy resources has sparked new debates involving energy security within rising powers in the region. Increased economic development has pushed these countries to consider new strategies for energy procurement in the 21st century. Key Asian nations have invested in renewable energy sources in an effort to diversify their energy assets as well as to fuel their expansion in the coming years. But traditional sources for energy, mainly petroleum, are still tremendously important. Some analysts fear energy conflicts could develop out of countries’ desires to lock down supplies of petroleum outside of Asia.

    Title: Sigur Center Asia Report, Issue 37: The Face-Off in Doklam: Interpreting India-China Relations
    Author: Sigur Center for Asian Studies
    Description: The recent standoff between India and China on the Doklam plateau was the latest in an increasingly long history of conflict and unease along the nearly 2,500-mile border which has strained relations. Although the latest incursion by Chinese forces occurred in the Doklam region along Bhutan’s border with China, and not the Sino-Indian border, Indian personnel responded in kind to back up their Bhutanese neighbors. What is the background to this dispute and what does its disposition tell us about the state of India-China relations? Former Indian Foreign Secretary and diplomat Nirupama Rao recently delivered remarks at the Sigur Center for Asian Studies giving her insights on these questions.

    Title: Sigur Center Asia Report, Issue 33: Remaking India: Modi’s Blueprint to Align Foreign Policy with Domestic Agenda
    Author: Sigur Center for Asian Studies
    Description: Now that Narendra Modi’s rule has passed the one year mark, there has been no shortage of performance assessments. Most are focused on either the domestic front or the international front. But how are domestic priorities and international ambitions intersecting in Modi’s government? And what does it mean for India’s global standing? These questions were addressed by Ambassador Neelam Deo, Director of Gateway House in Mumbai, at a Sigur Center lecture on “Remaking India: Modi’s Blueprint to Align Foreign Policy with Domestic Agenda.”

    Title: Sigur Center Asia Report, Issue 27: Asia Report: Beyond Competition: Anomalies in How States React to a Rising China
    Author: Sigur Center for Asian Studies
    Description: As China’s influence on geopolitics, energy markets, trade, and the global financial system continues to expand, conventional wisdom might predict growing resistance from Beijing’s wary neighbors. The Realist school of thought points to regional territorial disputes and economic rows as evidence of unavoidable competition in the face of a rising China. However, there are several key variances in how countries have responded to this challenge.

    Author: Sigur Center for Asian Studies
    Description: The Delhi gang-rape and subsequent death of medical student Jyoti Singh Pandey in December 2012 sparked an unprecedented discussion on violence against women in India. While sexual violence against women is a long-standing issue in India, relentless media coverage of this particular incident has elevated the conversation to both the national and international level. At a discussion on “Examining Violence Against Women in India: Changes, Challenges and Futures” convened by the Sigur Center for Asian Studies’ Rising Powers Initiative on April 12, 2013, panelists outlined the sociocultural and economic factors perpetuating sexual violence in India and highlighted opportunities for moving forward on the issue.

    Title: Sigur Center Asia Report, Issue 13: India's Energy Security Challenges: An Insider's View
    Author: Sigur Center for Asian Studies
    Description: The success of India as a major emerging power in the coming years will rely heavily on its ability to achieve and maintain energy security. Much like China, India's energy demands will continue to present it with difficult choices as the country attempts to balance its development and growing power with a host of environmental and political issues. These include a reliance on oil from unstable areas of the world, a lack of diverse energy options, potential conflict with China, and the adverse environmental effects of Delhi's current energy policies. As a member of India's Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board, Sudha Mahalingam shared her insights on India's energy challenges at a public forum organized by the Rising Powers Initiative at the Sigur Center for Asian Studies in December 2011.

    Author: Sigur Center for Asian Studies
    Description: What are the prospects for the development of an Asian regional community? How might identity influence the formation of that community? Will this emerging community include or exclude the United States? In May 2010, a group of preeminent scholars from the United States, Japan, China, South Korea and India gathered in Beijing at a conference organized by the Sigur Center for Asian Studies and China Foreign Affairs University to discuss the influence of identity on the foreign policy of Japan, China, South Korea and India, as well as the impact of identity on regional cooperation.

    Title: Sigur Center Asia Report, Issue 7: Rising India's Great Power Burden
    Author: Sigur Center for Asian Studies
    Description: The concept of India as a rising power has become almost commonplace. Yet systematic studies of India’s emerging global role are rare. C. Raja Mohan, one of India’s most prolific and respected foreign policy analysts, provided a skillful analysis of India’s shift from leader of the third world to a rising power and its future as a possible great power. In his lecture, “Rising India’s Great Power Burden,” he looked at changes in India’s self-perception, goals, and the mismatch between its ambitions to be a regional and world leader and its limited resources that has long persisted.

  10. Awareness as an Adaptation Strategy for Reducing Mortality from Heat Waves: Evidence from a Disaster Risk Management Program in India [Download]

    Title: Awareness as an Adaptation Strategy for Reducing Mortality from Heat Waves: Evidence from a Disaster Risk Management Program in India
    Author: Smith, Stephen
    Description: Heat waves, defined as an interval of abnormally hot and humid weather, have been a prominent killer in recent years. With heat waves worsening with climate change, adaptation is essential; one strategy has been to issue heat wave warnings and undertake awareness campaigns to bring about behavioral changes to reduce heat stroke. Since 2002, the Indian state of Odisha has been undertaking a grassroots awareness campaign on “dos and don’ts” during heat wave conditions through the Disaster Risk Management (DRM) program. Selection criteria for DRM districts were earthquake, flood, and cyclone incidence; but subsequently heat wave awareness also received intensive attention in these districts. We present quasi-experimental evidence on the impact of the program, taking DRM districts and periods as treatment units and the rest as controls, analyzing the impact on the death toll from heat stroke for the 1998 to 2010 period, using difference-in-difference (DID) regressions with a district level panel data set and a set of control variables. We find indications of program effectiveness with initial DID specifications, but results are not strongly robust. We then take into account a statewide heat wave advertising program, to which the poor have limited exposure but which may also provide spillover benefits, using a triple differencing approach; results suggest the heat wave awareness programs may have complementary impacts. We examine research strategies for much-needed improvement in the precision of impact evaluation results for innovative programs of this type.
