Title

Natural Disasters Surrounded by Political Crisis The 2014 Flood in Jammu and Kashmir

Abstract

This paper explores the political impact of the 2014 floods in the contentious and conflict-prone Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. The September 2014 floods were the most serious natural disaster in the state in the past sixty years, and affected some two million people in the Kashmir valley. Drawing on qualitative interview evidence from fifty flood victims in south, central and north Kashmir, the paper examines the extent to which the disaster transformed existing political narratives. In doing so, it examines the role of the state and central governments, the army, local volunteers, and the media. The paper concludes that the political impact of the floods was limited, but that it provided a brief, revealing glimpse of social and political realities.

Key Words

Media Accounts, Youth Volunteers, the Politics of Flood Disaster in Kashmir
