Quest for Peace and Diplomacy: A WebQuest on the India-Pakistan Conflict

Description: India-Pakistan have been in dispute over Kashmir since independence in 1947. Negotiators have so far been unsuccessful in obtaining a peace agreement between the two countries. Recent "testing" of nuclear weapons by both countries has escalated the importance of resolving this conflict. A Peace Summit has been called at the United Nations office in Geneva, Switzerland, by the U.N. Security Council as a final attempt to avert nuclear warfare in Pakistan and India. A war between these two nations could escalate to encompass the entire world. Delegations from Pakistan, India, Kashmir, and the United States have been invited to the meeting to present their proposals for a lasting peace and an end to calls for war. You are part of one of those delegations. Standards 10.9.8, 11.9.3, and Economics 12.6.3
