Description

On behalf of the Kashmir Council-EU and Julie Ward MEP (S&D) we have great pleasure in announcing an international conference entitled: ‘Hidden Wounds’ which will take place on 7 March 2019 I 14h-17h00 I Room A1E3 I European Parliament

For the past seven decades, all efforts to resolve the Indo-Pakistan dispute over Kashmir have failed. The price of this failure has fallen on the shoulders of the people of Kashmir who have had to suffer the consequences of the armed conflict. Kashmiri women have always played a significant role in the Kashmir resistance movement. However, the unrest of 2016 marked a turning point in the struggle for self-determination with women being involved in the conflict to a much greater extent than ever before.


The aim of this year’s conference is to examine the linked roles of education - both formal and informal - and gender equality, in mobilizing women and girls to fully participate in the development and maintenance of the democratic institutions of governance. These annual meetings are an expression of solidarity and support for the many brave women in Kashmir who have suffered from state-approved violence.
