1 Year With Modi

How have 12 months with a Narendra Modi-led BJP government changed India? Oslo’s leading India scholars offer their analysis of the impact of the BJP’s landslide victory at the general elections in May last year on India’s politics, economy and society.

The seminar includes presentations by:

Kathinka Frøystad (UiO): "An Offering to Ajmer: Token or Transformation?"

Geir Heierstad (NIBR): "Modi Abroad"

Moumita Sen (UiO): "Modi or Mamata? Glimpses of the Voter's Dilemma from the Streets of Bengal"

Priyanka Chakravarty (UiO): "The Year Gone by for Social Policies: Reflections on Selected Issues"


After the presentations, the presenters are joined in an open panel discussion by Kenneth Bo Nielsen (Asianettverket); Olle Törnquist (UiO); and Anne Waldrop (HiOA).

Arild Engelsen Ruud (UiO) will moderate the panel discussion.


The seminar is free and open to everyone.
