Portland, OR 97204, US (map)



The 62-year old Kashmir Conflict is one of the most intractable in the world. Increasingly, India and Pakistan have shown a greater willingness to consider fresh ideas for resolving the dispute. One of the most promising developments in recent years has been their amenability to hold dialogue on normalizing the situation in the Kashmir region through enhanced economic and human interaction between the Pakistani and Indian-administered parts of Kashmir.

Mercy Corps' Regional Program Director, Michael Bowers, has on-the-ground experience in this part of the world, and is recently returned from Afghanistan and Pakistan. Come hear Michael speak about what Mercy Corps is doing in these regions, and how the Phoenix Fund is in an innovative position to make economic and social changes to the Kashmir region.

This event is being hosted by Mercy Corps in it's new building located at 28 SW First Avenue in the historic Old Town Chinatown neighborhood.
