Daisy Alliance Student Scholarship Essay Contest
The Daisy Alliance is offering its 5th Annual Student Scholarship/Essay Contest with prizes of $1000, $500 and $250. The theme is, "South Asia at a Tipping Point".
Many experts argue that hostility between Pakistan and India, weak political conditions in Pakistan, the Afghan war, an assertive Pakistani military, and the possession of nuclear weapons, all place strains on stability that make South Asia the gravest threat to peace and security in the world today. Do you agree with this assessment, or would you argue that potential nuclear states, such as Iran or North Korea, pose a greater threat? Support your position by considering regional politics and stability, religious/social/cultural tensions, historical conflicts, and relationships with major powers.
