Among the many issues that have bedeviled India's Northeast, a crucial one has long been the issue of who is an insider and who, an outsider. This issue had its reverse in the discrimination faced by people from the region in cities of mainland India. The desire to find and evict outsiders, typically depicted as illegal Bangladeshi immigrants, is once again at the centre of attention not only in the region but nationally, with the publication of the final draft of the National Register of Citizens in Assam. A panel of experts from the region will discuss the complicated issue in its historical context

Collaboration:  Good World Foundation, Shillong
