What Are the Limits?

This article is a brief account of the work over the past three years of the Delhi-based Centre for Policy Analysis in Kashmir, where it started an initiative to connect people in the Valley with actors of political and civil society from the rest of the country over issues that concern Kashmiris.

The CPA's work has shown that Kashmir and its people are subjects of multiple and coexisting transformations.

These agreements curb India's independent foreign policy and entail increased militarisation, greater threat perceptions and instability.
