The Rule of Corporate Capital and the Decline of Democracy in India

 

The next event in the Inter-Campus Seminar on the ‘Practice of Democracy’ will be a lecture by Dr. Radhika Desai (Political Studies, University of Manitoba) on “The Rule of Corporate Capital and the Decline of Democracy in India.”

 

In this pre-circulated talk, Dr. Desai will analyze the 2019 Indian parliamentary elections through a political economic perspective, focusing on interactions among the Indian class, caste, and party structures to explore recent developments, such as the decline of the Congress party, the rise of regional parties, and of Hindutva.

 

The event is co-sponsored by Georgia State, Georgia Tech, Morehouse, Spelman, and Agnes Scott, and hosted by Emory University. It will take place on Tuesday, February 4 in the Major Room (Bowden Hall 323) from 4:15 - 5:45pm.

 

The discussion will build on the pre-circulated reading attached below, a forthcoming article by Dr. Radhika Desai, titled “Modi’s Hindutva: Advance and Limits.”

  

We look forward to seeing you at the event.
