Department for Strategic and Regional Studies (CSRS) :-

The Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK) Project is associated with the Centre for Strategic and Regional Studies, University of Jammu. The project aims at widening the discourse on the issue of Kashmir by focusing on the developments across the line of control (LOC). The main areas of research comprise: the legal and political status of POK; the socio-economic development of the region; and developing a comparative framework to analyse POK and J&K. 

The project aims at conducting research on all the above mentioned areas objectively and disseminate them through multiple channels such as seminars, workshops, talks, etc.  Documentation of the project includes collecting material from various libraries, press clippings, web sources, oral histories and interviews. The project has the distinction of producing a quarterly newsletter titled Across LOC, the only regular publication in India focusing on the developments across LOC. The newsletter, besides summarizing all activities carried under the project, contains information of current relevance.

The faculty involved in research comprise Dr. Debidatta Aurobinda Mahapatra and Dr. Seema Shekhawat.
