Stockholm University workshop on Neoliberal Development and Indian Democracy

The Forum for Asian Studies at Stockholm University organises a three-day international workshop on ”Neoliberal Development and Indian Democracy: The Politics of Rights, Rebellions and Reforms” on 10–12 October 2013. The conference with invited speakers will bring together analysts whose research throws light on aspects of India’s encounter with neo-liberalism. There will be political-economic, sociological and ethnographic explorations of the following themes of rights, rebellion, dispossession and the reconceptualization of the state. Except for the first open morning session (programme posted below) it is necessary to pre-register with the organisers – by mail asianstudies@su.se – in order to participate in the workshop. Venue: Aula Magna, Stockholm University, Frescati.

The open session is held on Thursday 10 October, 10.00–12.30, and features presentations by Kanchan Chandra, New York University, USA, on “The New Indian State”; by John Echeverri-Gent, University of Virginia, USA, on “India’s Neoliberal Turn: Do the costs outweigh the benefits?”; and Alpa Shah, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK, on “The Rise and Fall of the Maoist Movement in India”.
