Indian politics has entered a period of unprecedented and multidimensional crises. The global integration of Indian economy through structural changes has unleashed various forces as a result of which the institutional setup of the State has come under extreme pressure. The three organs of State often seem to be acting in fragile and strained harmony.
The expansion of new technologies of global reach has rewritten the rules of democratic social interaction. The powerful rise of media, largely controlled by corporate business interest is both a promise and a threat for people's politics.
Indian politics stands at a crossroads today, with regional and national parties having to search for new frame-works of partnership in and outside coalitions. The proposed seminar is expected to provide an opportunity to bring together scholars who will collectively dwell on the changing landscapes of Indian politics and discern emerging trends that will most likely shape the future of Indian Politics. The suggested sub-themes are Coalition Government, regional political parties and federalism, decline of political institutions, globalization and its impact on national politics, media and politics, politics in the age of economic reforms, politics and crime: the evil nexus and religion and caste in Indian Politics etc.
