Democracy Against the Law: Reflections on India's Illiberal Democracy
Friday, September 20, 2019
206 Ingraham Hall
Thomas Blom Hansen will speak about the discrepancy between the liberal language of rights in the Constitution and the largely illiberal and often violent ways in which the ‘force of law’ is visited upon non-elite Indians by the country’s police powers, and the effects of the Hindu nationalist movement.
