Resuming the Dialogue: India, Pakistan and the Composite Process
Pia Malhotra and Aparajita Kashyap

Where should the dialogue fro from here? What are the major issues? Two interns from IPCS, conducted interviews were with former government officials and bureaucrats, retired military personnel, civil society activists, media persons and academicians, to ask them what the future course of dialogue between India and Pakistan should include and if India and Pakistan should start a dialogue again. The discussions revealed similar perceptions, India and Pakistan must dialogue but it might be time to revisit the content of their dialogue and change the nature of their relationship.

The Institute runs a project on Indo-Pak dialogue on Conflict Resolution and Peace Building. As a part of project, the Institute is publishing a series of background papers on various Indo-Pak bilateral issues. Besides, the Institute is also organizing track-II dialogue between the two countries in October 2009.  For more information about this project, please visit IPCS Projects Page: http://www.ipcs.org/projects.php. This Project is supported by the Ploughshares Fund
