CASI (Center for the Advanced Study of India)
Description: The first comprehensive study of the nexus between crime and democracy in India.In India, the world’s largest democracy, the symbiotic relationship between crime and politics raises complex questions. For instance, how can free and fair democratic elections exist alongside rampant criminality? Why do political parties actively recruit candidates with reputations for wrongdoing? Why do voters elect (and even reelect) them, to the point that a third of state and national legislators assume office with pending criminal charges?In this eye-opening book, political scientist Milan Vaishnav takes readers deep into the marketplace for criminal politicians by drawing on fieldwork on the campaign trail, large surveys, and an original database on politicians’ backgrounds. The result is the first systematic study of an issue that has profound implications for democracy both with and beyond India’s borders.

Roselyn Hsueh Associate Professor of Political Science - Temple University
Location: 3600 Market St, Suite 560 (5th flr)
Description: China and India are two large, developing countries that have globalized and undergone tremendous development in the last several decades. Yet, they have taken separate paths toward globalization. Dr. Hsueh questions the conventional wisdom that variation in regime type and subnational characteristics shape their different models of development. Rather, mediating the impact of economic liberalization on industrialization is the nature of market governance. Dominant patterns of market governance, which shape industrial outcomes, are a function of the values and identities of political economic elites, existing organization of institutions, and structural sectoral attributes.
