About The Forum: ------------------ After 56 years of Indian independence, Kashmir remains the long-standing unresolved dispute which plagues the subcontinent and has become the nuclear flashpoint, bleeding the Kashmiris and the economy of both India and Pakistan, driving them to a mad arms race. This forum will strive to present a balanced view on the Kashmir 'problem' by taking a critical look at the role both India and Pakistan have played in bringing the region to its current state. The focus will not stray far from the plight of the people of Kashmir, of all communities, who have borne the brunt of the fall-out from decisions being made in Islamabad and New Delhi. The speakers will also address possible ways to resolve the seemingly intractable conflict in the region so that the people of Kashmir, including those who have had to flee their homes and become refugees in India and Pakistan, can start rebuilding their lives in peace. ----------------------------------------------- Topic: A Discussion Forum on Kashmir Organizers: Dr. Angana Chatterji, Professor, Social and Cultural Anthropology Program California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS), San Francisco Mr. Zulfiqar Ahmad -- (Pakistani Son in-law of Admiral Ramdas ) Peace and Security Program Officer for South Asia Global Peace & Security Program The Nautilus Institute for Security and Sustainable Development, Berkeley Speakers: * Dr. Pervez Hoodbhoy, Professor of Physics, Quaid-e-Azam University, Islamabad, Pakistan * Dr. Ghulam Nabi Fai, Executive Director, Kashmiri American Council, Washington, D.C. * Ms. Akhila Raman, Researcher on the Kashmir Conflict, Berkeley, CA Followed by a Q&A and Discussion with audience.
