The progenitors of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks are still operating in Kashmir, making the region an important one for American policymakers. A panel of experts will discuss this issue as part of a seminar, “Terrorism in South Asia: Ground Realities and Consequences,” sponsored by the School of Public Policy. The seminar is held today from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Original Building, Room 244, on the Arlington Campus.

Members of the panel are moderator K.P. Nayar, diplomatic editor and correspondent for the Americas of The Telegraph; Raj Kadian, author of six books including The Kashmir Tangle: Issues and Options and Nuclear Weapons and the Indian Army; Charles Santos, former deputy chief of the United Nations mission to Afghanistan; and Harold Gould, visiting scholar of South Asian studies in the University of Virginia’s Center for South Asian Studies and author of five books on Indian society and politics.

The seminar is open to the university community. Refreshments will be served.
