AREA OF SPECIALIZATION

CASS-INDIA CAMPAIGN

After launching three successful campaigns in the past involving South Asia, Central Asia and West Asia, CASS-India is currently focusing on Asia-Pacific region. Normally each campaign period remains in force for three to four years. Depending upon the response, CASS-India would either extend or cut short the tenure of the campaign period. Indeed, Asia-Pacific Campaign has started since year 2011.

CASS-India Reaction

Pakistan's new Afghan peace initiative
INTRODUCTION:

For a change, Pakistan is taking a very bold step to host a quadrilateral meeting on Afghan peace process in February. Although similar initiatives have been going on for some time, each time the final result has set an abysmal record for itself due to lack of political will and coherence. Often, the interests of state and vested interests within the military and elsewhere have succeeded in creating a deep mistrust. Even during peace talks there have been instances in which Taliban leaders were killed in fake ambush after being invited for talks. Now, there is another dichotomy to this in addition to what is going on in this theatre by a slew of stake holders that Pakistan military has also some friendly groups within the realm of conflict in Afghanistan.

ANALYSIS:

Now, the question comes if the peace process warrants these elements to surrender or eliminated at some stage, then whether Pakistani military establishment will allow this to happen.

It appears that Nawaz Sharief Government has this time taken some calculation into this factor as how its own military will react. It is a separate story whether there will be any meaningful dialogue this time.

 This will be the third round of talks in the Pakistani capital. There is no point in finding what happened in the past.
