Webinar: India's democracy

Datum: 17-09-2020
Tijd: 18:00 - 20:00
Locatie: online

We cordially invite you to participate in a virtual meeting focusing on the present dire situation in Indian-Administered Kashmir. We intend to raise awareness of the India/ Kashmir crisis at the highest level possible, but also to provide answers to gripping questions and join the dots in presenting the matrix of consistent and compelling arguments regarding the future of Jammu and India/Kashmir. 
As you may be aware, the Indian government’s suppression of Art. 370 of the Indian Constitution together with the adoption of the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act, are merely stages in a process whereby the people of India/Kashmir are being systematically stripped of their basic human rights. The massive military presence has created an environment in which arbitrary arrest, use of excessive force, restrictions on freedom of expression have all become the norm rather than the exception. These and other constraints on the free flow of information have become especially important during the current COVID-19 pandemic. 
The webinar intends to bring together policymakers, political activists, intellectuals, and interest group representatives and will provide ample opportunity for debate, dialogue and exchanges of ideas. The meeting will be held in English. As the space is limited, it is best to register as soon as possible right here
