Abstract

Discourse on Kashmir has been polarised either in favour of secession from India, or in support of a union with India. Howeverm the nature of state intervention within Kashmir over the past 50 years is a critical missing link within academic discourse. A holistic analysis requires careful disentanglement from the evidence and a conclusion that is not biased to any one piece of the puzzle. Of course, this could result in an alternative hypothesis; one that may be a hybrid position and not necessarily a new perspective. A political economy framework sheds new light on the political intrigues that thwarted the welfare maximising benefits of the state's economic policies. Over time, this fuelled dissent, which mobilised into militancy, catalysed by several factors.
