Workshop on Tracing Patterns of Inequalities & Grievances in South Asia


Date: Feb. 3, 2016 - Feb. 4, 2016

Venue: Old Conference Hall, TISS, Mumbai

Focusing particularly on South Asia, this workshop will discuss the multiple dimensions of inequalities and grievances, and how these can lead to both peaceful and violent outcomes. While recent empirical studies have convincingly shown that political and economic inequalities along ethnic lines increase the risk of violence, we know much less about the mechanisms by which ethnic grievances are translated into political actions. In view of this, the workshop will bring together researchers, civil society activists and media representatives to explore a range of topics, including ethnic identity and conflict, democracy and the position of marginalised communities, as well as the post-conflict context and the role of civil society.
