The Subcontinental is a South Asian Voices (SAV) podcast on strategic issues in South Asia. SAV is an online policy platform featuring emerging South Asian analysts. It aims to foster free-flowing, critical debate on South Asia’s security, economic, and political issues, with a special focus on nuclear matters.
This special short podcast on The Subcontinental features a discussion on the South Asian Voices Visiting Fellowship. SAV Managing Editor, Akriti Vasudeva, interviews the four Summer 2017 SAV Visiting Fellows: Kishwar Munir, Monish Tourangbam, Ruhee Neog, and Yasir Hussain.
The six-month SAV Visiting Fellowship combines writing and research with exposure to the D.C. security community. Fellows meet with senior scholars at universities and think tanks along with leading practitioners working on South Asian security issues in the U.S. government. Research begun by Fellows during their month in D.C. culminates in a presentation in Washington, D.C. and a co-authored policy memo published by the Stimson Center. Fellows also contribute analysis to SAV during the Fellowship. Twice a year, the SAV Editorial Team invites outstanding, regular SAV contributors to apply for a Visiting Fellowship with the Stimson Center’s South Asia Program in Washington, D.C.
