Interviews | Podcasts

Starting from October 2021, EFSAS has launched a new feature; 'Plain Talk' | Interviews, Webinars, Discussions and Podcasts with scholars, academics, politicians, human rights activists, diplomats and creative thinkers to help achieve a better understanding and conceive new ideas vis-à-vis the challenges in South Asia and thereby contribute to sustainable solutions to conflicts and facilitate an atmosphere of reconciliation, peace and tranquillity. 

This new feature involves close collaboration in order to learn from the expertise and experience of the respective speakers and always exists on the basis of mutual independence.

EFSAS would like to emphasize that speakers are invited to present their viewpoints, and that the views expressed might not necessarily fully coincide with the views held by EFSAS.
