Great Decisions 2020: Kashmir: Flashpoint between India and Pakistan
Tuesday, February 11, 2020
(Weekly simulcast of Great Decisions 2020)
KASHMIR: FLASHPOINT BETWEEN INDIA AND PAKISTAN
Raza Ahmad Rumi, director, department of journalism, Ithaca College
How do we de-escalate conflict between these two nuclear powers? India and Pakistan have a long history of conflict. How has escalation within the Kashmir region changed the stakes for the U.S. and the world?
Drawing on his deep background as a journalist and policy analyst, Raza Ahmad Rumi will contextualize the factors that play into India and Pakistan’s actions and the U.S. response to these countries.
After a failed assassination attempt by the Taliban in 2014 which killed his driver, Rumi resides in the United States and currently serves as the director of the department of journalism at Ithaca College.
Simulcasts of Great Decisions 2020 are held every Tuesday from 12:00-1:00 pm at City Hall, February 11 through March 31. No registration or fee required.
