Behind the Headlines: Is India Becoming More Democratic?

Craig Jeffrey (University of Oxford) and Stephen Young (University of Washington) are currently undertaking social research on Dalit democratization in north India. The project is funded by the USA’s National Science Foundation (NSF). It seeks to address the question of democratization in Uttar Pradesh through reference to the lives and struggles of a set of Dalit political entrepreneurs in north India. We have included short biographies for Craig and Stephen on the main page of the blog and also a link to a description of our NSF funded project. Craig and Stephen will be regular contributors to the blog. We look forward to these discussions.
