The Indian Elections: Panel discussion

19th of May 2009, 17.00 (s.t.), Z10, South Asia Institute

led by Professor Ajay K. Mehra (Delhi), Dr. David Taylor (London) and members of the Department of Political Science, South Asia Institute

The latest parliamentary elections in India - the 'largest' democracy in the world - opens up several important general questions. How does a post-colonial society with deep layers of mass poverty, misery and marginality sustain elections of gigantic proportions, run to a high level of professionalism and fairness? At the same time, why does the electoral democracy nevertheless condone conspicuous and flagrant lapses of liberal democracy, rule of law as well as corruption and crime? The panellists will address specific issues connected to this wider theme.
