The present publication not only introduces the reader with beginning and development, scope and sphere, significance and importance of SAARC but also discuss in detail about its organizational setup and functioning process. It also includes summits held in various countries.
Although SAARC is a cultural, economic and commercial association, aimed at creating a free zone, which may ultimately turn into a unified geographical entity, like European Union, yet it has its political shades and aspects. Hence, this study discusses political factors also. It is useful not only to the students and research scholars but also to the political scientists, planners and policy makers.
