Special Issue on Kashmir
In this special issue on Kashmir, we look at the dramatic change in the status of Kashmir that was effected with the reading down/abrogation of Article 370 in August 2019 and the aftermath of this moment. While Kashmir has been violated for decades, the removal of all special status with the abrogation was more than a symbolic change and not just because of the escalation in violence, the most dramatic internet shutdown in any modern nation. What has changed with this abrogation? What did that moment mean for Kashmir and what does it mean for its future?
