Course Description

This course examines the challenges and opportunities of democracy and development in modern (post-Independence) India.

What are the respective roles of the Indian state, civil society, and private sector in promoting economic growth and human development? How well do India's political institutions perform in promoting these goals? What can we learn from the Indian experience about democratic practice and prospects for development in other countries?
