About the Journal

The Kashmir dispute is not only the timeworn issue of the United Nations (UN), but is also an unfinished agenda of partition of the sub-continent. Besides being the longest and unresolved dispute in the World, the Kashmir dispute is a source of enmity between two neighboring countries of South Asia; India and Pakistan. People of Jammu and Kashmir have been struggling for their right to self-determination for more than six decades. There is a great deal of deadlock between India and Pakistan for the resolution of the Kashmir dispute since 1947.

We welcome contributions by researchers, administrators, policy makers and all others interested in promoting a better understanding of the Kashmir cause.
