INAF 212 - Democracy in India
For the past seven decades, India has defied the predictions of skeptics who predicted its democratic form of government would not withstand the pressures imposed by poverty, illiteracy, ethnic diversity, and its sprawling geography. This course will explore the conceptual underpinnings of democracy and India's supposed outlier status. It will also critically analyze the performance of India's democracy in executing the sovereign functions of government, from law and order to justice and basic public services. Special attention will be paid to the country's management of elections and what, if anything, the democratic world can learn from India's successes and failures.
