This paper proposes a simple game-theoretical framework for the migration of Muslims from India to Pakistan post the partition of 1947. It solves for the proportion of people expected to migrate from two neighbourhoods in India, while for a social effect and wage differentials.
The second half of the paper delves into two ways that the existence of a Nash Equilibrium can be proved. First, through a real analysis lens, based on the work done by Hertling. Second, through a modal logic lens, based on the work done by Aumann and Brandenburger.
