Kashmir: Paths to Peace
This conference will mark the launch of a new report 'Kashmir: Paths to Peace' based on an opinion poll commissioned by HE Saif al Islam al Qadhafi in May 2009 and conducted by IpsosMORI in October-November 2009. This is the first poll to be conducted on both sides of the Line of Control (LoC) that has separated Indian and Pakistani controlled Kashmir since the UN-brokered ceasefire on 1 January 1949. The ongoing dispute has poisoned relationships between the two countries and cost thousands of lives. The report explores the attitudes of Kashmiris to a range of issues, and offers some options for future progress to resolve the stalemate.
