Well over half of British Pakistanis trace their origins to Mirpur District in Azad Kashmir: the narrow strip of territory along the western edge of the former princely state of Kashmir which was not incorporated into India in 1947. This article explores the social political and economic dilemmas faced by contemporary Azad Kashmiris in the light of their marginal position in Pakistan, and the benefits - and costs - of the construction of the Mangla Dam and large scale overseas migration.
