Discussion: Afghanistan-Pakistan-India, 2001 and Beyond

02 September 2014

London

As the US-led NATO forces withdraw from Afghanistan, the role of regional players in contributing towards a stable Afghanistan gains salience. Will India and Pakistan cooperate in Afghanistan? According to some, at the heart of Afghanistan’s contemporary war is the India-Pakistan rivalry. Based on a project funded by the UK-India Education and Research Initiative (UKIERI), scholars from the US, India and UK decode this trilateral dynamic.

An advanced doctoral candidate at the Johns Hopkins University, Mr Khalid Nadiri specialises in politics of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Similarly, Mr. Sourish Ghosh, an advanced doctoral candidate at the Jadavpur University in Kolkata, India, studies Indian foreign policy with focus on Afghanistan. And Mr. Avinash Paliwal is a Teaching Fellow and advanced doctoral candidate at the Defence Studies Department, KCL, and also chairs the ASG. 

Venue:  Room K6.07, War Studies Meeting Room, Kings College London, Strand Campus.

Time: 5.30-7.30pm
