Are there possibilities of conflicts getting addressed in 2019, and peace process walking the last mile? While South Asia has been witnessing numerous conflicts-political, armed and violent during the last few decades, the following five are likely to be the most prominent during 2019. 1) Afghan Conflict: Tipping point, 2) Pakistan: The political rise of extreme right and an unstable Karachi, 3) J&K: Return of Violence and an unstable Srinagar-Jammu-Delhi Triangle, 4) Sri Lanka: Will the 2018 tremors lead to a tsunami in 2019 and 5) India-Pakistan: The road to nowhere.
