Date: Apr 20, 2017
The idea of pluralism in domestic societies and international politics is being challenged by rising populism and jingoism. This raises a basic question: Do multiculturalism, multipolarity and multiple systems of knowledge lend themselves to a stable, peaceful and more equal world? This event will explore the following:
  • Is there a need to reconceptualise or recentre the idea of pluralism?
  • Are current domestic and international institutions equipped to handle a plurality of powers, epistemologies, and cultures?
  • What India can bring to the debate on pluralism?
