First South Asia Peace Conference at the University of North Texas (UNT) will be held on November 5-6, 2011 at UNT Denton, on behalf of the Organizing Committee UNT Assistant Den and Conference Chair Dr Qasir Abbas said. We hope this conference will become a platform for leaders, diplomats, researchers and institutions in promoting peace and communal harmony in South Asia. While Asia is emerging as a viable world region economically and politically, establishing peace remains a paramount challenge for South Asians. With two nuclear powers, India and Pakistan, South Asia also has two nuclear giants, China and Russia, in the close proximity to the region. Intra and inter-state conflicts in South Asia pose a genuine threat not only to the world but also to the region. Dr Qasir Abbas said panel discussions and solo presentations, the conference offers multiple formats for its scholarly sessions and activities. As it is our intention to offer this conference annually, we will welcome ideas from speakers, themes and performances for next year’s Conference. Abbas said Ambassador of Pakistan to the United States, Husain Haqqani will speak the topic of Democracy in the Age of Terrorism: The Role of Pakistan in Establishing Peace in South Asia. Ambassador of Afghanistan to the United States, Eklil Ahmed Hakimi will be speaking on establishing peace in his country after the withdrawal of NATO Forces. Also renowned Peace Activist from India Dr. Sandeep Pandey will speak about Nuclear Armament and Peace in South Asia: The Love-Hate Relations between India and Pakistan.
