Socio-Political Unrest in the Region Called North-East India

Abstract

One can evaluate the socio-political unrest in the north-east as an offshoot of unequal power relationships between the ethnic groups in the region. History shows that ethnic conflict in the north-east has long social and cultural roots. The current turmoil has more to do with ethnic political aspirations and the effort to protect local territories and resources. The expansion of ethnic identity has captured political institutions and social movements. Moreover, the socio-political assertion is based on demographic power in order to maintain ethnic hegemony.
