The South Asian countries are tied through a common heritage and similar socio-economic problems. However, despite its geopolitical sensitivity and human resource potential, there has been limited discussion on the possible areas of cooperation and barriers to such cooperation in the South Asian region. With the proposed USA withdrawal from Afghanistan and recent tensions between India and Pakistan, the conversation on South Asia has never been more relevant than it is today.

This event is co-sponsored by the South Asia Engagement group, the Centre for Economic Research in Pakistan, and the Lakshmi Mittal and Family South Asia Institute.
