Transformation Of Backward Politics In India: The Case Of Uttar Pradesh

Lecture | October 18 | 5-6:30 p.m. | 223 Moses Hall


Gilles Verniers, Assistant Professor of Political Science and Director of the Trivedi Centre for Political Data, Ashoka University

Institute of International Studies, Institute for South Asia Studies


Electoral politics in the state of Uttar Pradesh is undergoing profound changes. A long phase of explicit caste and religion-based electoral politics has given way to inclusive political discourses and electoral strategies that have produced more diverse assemblies, in terms of caste and communities composition. At the same time, a new political class has emerged, grounded in local business networks and using electoral politics as a form of investment to further a variety or local political and private business interests.
