About this event

Andrew Whitehead will bring us up to date with what is happening in Kashmir, and the roots of the current conflict. Kashmir is a land split between India, Pakistan and China, with many Kashmiris making their homes in Nottingham, mostly still with family links “back home”.

Andrew Whitehead is a former head of news at the BBC World Service and the author of the major work on Kashmir in the past A Mission in Kashmir, now available as a free download.

He is an Honorary Professor at the Institute for Asia-Pacific Studies at the University of Nottingham. He is also the author, joint author and joint editor of several unrelated books for Five Leaves Publications including London Fictions, the series of books on Curious London and a book on Alexander Baron.

Andrew teaches journalism in India and has contributed to many Indian magazines.
