Democracy and Development - India

Winterim 2014

The world’s largest democracy and an emerging economy, India embodies a series of paradoxes: self-confident urban middle classes, continuing poverty and inequality, urban/rural divide, vibrant social movements and NGOs, and the seventh decade of free elections. This Global Study will examine these paradoxes in order to explore the strengths and challenges in Indian political and economic development today. Traveling to Delhi and Agra we will be able to appreciate both the cultural heritage of Indian civilization and the dynamics of a rapidly changing democratic capitalist political economy. These forces shape the lives of women and men, who in turn act to restore, maintain, and transform them. We will observe the diversity that constitutes Indian society and engage in a village project designed to promote social change.​
