While the developed world is dealing with tough times itself – politically, economically and socially, we do not have to forget about the rest of the world – that is struggling at a much higher level. The main difference though, is that the developing world is seeing much more (armed) conflict. As you read this, there are more than 40 conflicts unfolding in countries around the world and you might not even be aware of this. The media and political leaders have given much attention to conflicts such as those in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria or Ukraine, yet there are many others that go un/underreported. For this reason, those who are lucky to be in a more favourable position should pull all the efforts and bring to attention the less ‘mainstream’ conflicts from around the world – as some wars are raging for years, ignored by those who are not affected, and just as devastating as the other conflicts. EYfHR is proposing a series of events that will focus solely on bringing light to matters very much actual, but long forgotten. Given the recent events, the first thematic series will introduce the conflict of Kashmir - a conflict that makes victims for the last 70 years, becoming the longest lasting and most militarised area in the world.
