The news has been so focused on Syria, Turkey, and Ukraine, that
India’s aggressive annexation of the disputed territory of Kashmir in early August was just a flicker on most people’s consciousness. The years of separatist violence, often fueled by Pakistan, then harshly repressed
by India has largely been ignored in the US.
Victoria Schofield has traveled in and written extensively about South
Asia, especially in reference to the Jammu-Kashmir region. She is
an engaging speaker and, though she lives in Great Britain, is a good
friend of World Affairs Council Inland Southern California. Let us
welcome her by sharing a meal and discussion during
