India and Pakistan: War or Peace?

About the Event

Deadly ImpasseAfter four wars and multiple crises, Indo-Pakistani relations stand at a deadly impasse, contends FPRI Senior Fellow Sumit Ganguly in his new book, Deadly Impasse: Indo-Pakistani Relations at the Dawn of a New Century. Rooted in the 1947 partition of British India, this impasse is perhaps deadlier than most, as both are nuclear armed states. Does the Christmas Day 2015 meeting of India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Pakistan’s Nawaz Sharif portend a new beginning? Is there a role for the US in preventing future conflict?

Sumit GangulyTo answer these questions and more, FPRI’s Ron Granieri will “interrogate” Ganguly. Ganguly holds the Rabindranath Tagore Chair in Indian Cultures and Civilizations at Indiana University, where he is also director of the Center on American and Global Security. One of our most popular speakers, Ganguly has written or edited over twenty books on South Asia. His articles have appeared in all major journals, including Foreign Affairs, International Security, and Orbis. He has also been a Guest Scholar at the Woodrow Wilson Center for Scholars, he is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (New York), and the International Institute of Strategic Studies (London).

Books will be available for purchase at this event.
