The Kashmir Initiative: Kashmir Speaker Series

Kashmir Speaker Series
“The World's Most Militarized Dispute”

As the U.S. works with India and Pakistan on a diplomatic solution for Kashmir, the voice of the Kashmiri people must not be lost. In an attempt to capture the nuances of the conflict and to build an inclusive dialogue, the Carr Center presents the 2009-10 Speaker Series Kashmir: Human Rights Policy for “The World's Most Militarized Dispute.” Weaving in historians, anthropologists, lawyers, policymakers, artists, Kashmiris and non-Kashmiris, we hope to begin a conversation that unravels the issues that led President Obama to classify Kashmir as a diplomatic “tar pit.”

The Speaker Series is generously co-sponsored by The South Asia Initiave, at Harvard University.
