Exploring Solutions to Cooperation on Regional Challenges Amidst Geopolitical Turmoil
South Asia, and more specifically India and Pakistan, represent a critical geo-political region which is home to more than a quarter of humanity. Its territory is the theatre of multiple ongoing religious and ethnic tensions dating back for centuries. Over the past several decades, the tensions and rivalry between India and Pakistan, two nuclear powers, have mounted, with the region being constantly vulnerable to the geopolitical competition between the United States, Russia and China. Therefore, the GCSP, as a leading security policy actor, must strengthen its knowledge, network and sphere of influence amongst political and security actors in the region. The opportunity to invite three former intelligence officers from India and Pakistan will help achieve these goals and position the GCSP as the lead for regional peace and security. These three former intelligence officers from India and Pakistan will share their expertise and insights on the situation in this region.
- Lt. Gen. Asad Durrani, retired officer in the Pakistani Army
- Mr Amarit Singh Dulat, retired head of the Indian External Intelligence Agency
- Br. Gen. Saad Muhammad, retired officer in the Pakistani Army
- Dr Christina Schori Liang, Senior Adviser, Research and Policy Advice, GCSP
