The paper provides some background to the conflict and explains how it dates back to the end of British rule over the Indian subcontinent in 1947 and the partitioning of what used to be a single country into India and Pakistan. The paper shows how the situation has grown more complicated in the past decade and considers the conflict's future resolution. The paper posits that the Indian government will probably never agree to Kashmiri independence or a merger of the state with Pakistan; the best hope is that India will extend autonomous status to the region or will merge the Indian and Pakistani portions together in a semi-autonomous province. The paper notes that Pakistan, in return, will have to end support of the insurgency.

From the Paper:

"Political tensions between India and Pakistan caused by the Kashmir issue keep the countries' national security uncertain and ensure the diversion of national budgets to defense spending and other such measures. These are misplaced priorities, and have largely contributed to the corrosive social environment of both Pakistan and India.
"Kashmir - far from Europe, high in the Himalayas - has caused two wars between India and Pakistan, in 1949 and 1965; featured prominently in a third, in 1971; and almost sparked another, in the last two months of cross-border skirmishes. With the latest crisis in the form of the attack of the parliamentary building in India the borders are being armed again. The secessionist movement in Kashmir is very much alive. Hundreds of thousands of Indian and Pakistani troops still stare at each other across their 1,012- kilometer border."
