India and Pakistan at 75⁠—A Dialogue with Akbar Ahmed and Nirupama Rao

Date & Time

Aug. 16, 2022
11:00am – 12:00pm ET


This month, India and Pakistan mark 75 years since independence. The traumatic and tragic events of Partition continue to impact both countries today. They have fought multiple wars and struggled to forge better relations, but they have also pursued some forms of dialogue and cooperation. This event will feature a moderated conversation with Akbar Ahmed and Nirupama Rao, both Wilson Center global fellows and former senior diplomats with a keen understanding of the India-Pakistan relationship and its complexities. They will take stock of the last 75 years, assess what the future might hold, and consider the prospects for dialogue between the two nuclear-armed neighbors.

Please note this is an online-only event conducted by the Asia Program in partnership with Wilson Center NOW.
