Looking Behind The Veil: A Glimpse Into Pakistan


Recently returning from Pakistan, Christophe Jaffrelot, senior research fellow at the Centre d'études et de recherches internationales (CERI), will share insights from his travels in a nation that has been making the headlines recently. As a newly elected government is challenged through mass mobilizations, how might we understand the political and social realities in Pakistan today? What are the implications of the current and emerging landscape in Pakistan for India and the rest of Asia? Join Mr. Jaffrelot and Kumar Ketkar, Chief Editor, Dainik Divya Marathi for a nuanced, in-depth conversation on present day Pakistan.

He has been visiting professor at Columbia University, Yale and SAIS (Johns Hopkins). Among his publications are The Hindu Nationalist Movement and Indian Politics, 1925 to 1990s, and India’s Silent Revolution.
