The five-year old peace process between India and Pakistan was suspended after the November 2008 attacks in Mumbai. Recent public statements from leaders of the two countries point to the possible resumption of this "composite dialogue process." What are the prospects for meaningful progress, most particularly in relation to the dispute over the contested Jammu and Kashmir region? How can this tense relationship'which has led to four wars between the two nuclear-armed South Asian neighbors'be fundamentally restructured for enduring peace in the area? Is there a role for informal, non-governmental initiatives, such as those recently begun by the two of the largest news publishers in the two countries'the Jang Group and The Times of India?
Please join experts from the region to discuss these and other pertinent issues.
