The theme of regional integration suggests increased economic, social and political interdependence. In south Asia this effort beside all recognized goals was aimed at bringing peace and prosperity in the region. But till to date this effort is seen a failure. Other contemporary organizations of SAARC have achieved tremendous growth. The studies on the region reveal that inter-state rivalries are the main hurdle in the growth of the organization. ASEAN region has developed mechanism for conflict resolution. But SAARC has failed to develop any such mechanism. Through this study an effort is made to highlight the major conflicts in the region and their impacts on the working of the organization. Recommendations are provided for some established mechanisms for conflict resolution in the region. The impact of different threat perceptions in SAARC is highlighted. An attempt is also made to analyze the role of dominant regional power in the success and failure of regional organizations. This effort aims at further understanding about the core issues of the region and their solution. The available literature on the subject suggests a descriptive perspective of the issue. This article aims at analytical review of the topic.
