Video Interview with Prof. Rahul Mukherji on Latest Thinking
Latest Thinking - an Open Access Video Journal - published an interview with Prof. Rahul Mukherji (Head of the Department of Political Science at the SAI) on "How does India achieve change in its policies". The video interview is available here.

Further information:
India has been known to be a state that never changes. Since the 1980s, and especially after the 1990s, however, India’s growth trajectory has begun to evolve and change from its static status quo. RAHUL MUKHERJI has investigated the reasons for this change, as he explains in this video. For this, he looked at historical processes and compared processes that have achieved successful change to processes that have failed to achieve change. He found that India performs despite its slow developments in policies because they gradually achieve a consensus among political and social actors. Once this critical mass of ideas has been reached, changes in policies occur, for instance in the area of welfare policies, such as the implementation of the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme.
