This report is the result of a conference held at Stanford University on January 15-16, 1999. The purpose of the meeting was twofold: 1) to explore ways in which the United States can, in cooperation with other nations and international organizations, enhance its capacity to contribute to international peace through preventive diplomacy and preventive defense; and 2) to assess the utility of third-party, particularly U.S., preventive action in reducing the multiple dangers posed by the ongoing ethno-territorial conflict in Kashmir and the incipient nuclear rivalry between India and Pakistan.

Full text of the report is available in the attached document below.
