Anthony P. D’Costa Achin Chakraborty (Editors), Dynamics of Asian Development Series

This volume is based on a conference organized in Kolkata by the Australia India
Institute, University of Melbourne, and the Institute of Development Studies
Kolkata in December 2015. The title of the conference was Instruments of
Intervention: Capitalist Development and the Remolding of the Indian State. The aim was to tackle three broad threads, without foreclosing others. They are the changing nature of the relationship between state and capital, the mediating role of society in influencing developmental outcomes, to analyze the seemingly contradictory roles of the state in undertaking major state-sponsored social programs, and opening up greater spaces for the market, and to examine the dynamic relationship between the state and the form of democracy under changing political regimes. These three threads are present in this volume.

In order not to overload participants with virtual input and contribute to zoom fatigue, we have decided to keep our sessions short and concise, with longer breaks in-between. Like in our previous workshops, we place a strong focus on interactive exchange based on the ideas and needs of participants.
