Class attendance, participation and discussion. (20%) 3. A written essay (4,000-6,000 words).

(40%) Pedagogical method : This course will be based on several complementary pedagogical approaches, including one presentation of a literature review and one ﬁnal paper. Course Description : This course aims at introducing students to India's social and political transformations since Independence in 1947. It will make sense of the rise of India as the world's ‘largest democracy' and its emergence as an actor of international importance. We will question the way Indian leaders approached internal as well as external threats to its stability, such as secessionist movements, guerrillas, ethnic and religious conﬂicts, social movements and various sustained tensions with neighbouring countries. This course also debates the changing nature of Indian democracy in the context of 1990's liberalisation and the end of the Cold War order. This dual-faceted approach will provide the students with perspectives and understandings of fundamental stepping stones of Indian politics : secularism, linguistic diversity, federalism as well as multilateralism, regional cooperation, etc. Throughout, this course will allow students to see how the study of a new geographical space can be problematised, and how India can help us renew the understanding we have of societies' core notions. This course will be divided into three sections. The ﬁrst will provide an overview of past and current methodological and thematic questions related to the study of non-Western societies. The second part will analyse the founding pillars of constitutional democracy and the way they are implemented. Moreover we will make sense of
India's approach of diplomacy in the international scene. Subsequently we will understand how India deals with multiple conﬂicts in South Asia. An overview will be given of the internal challenges to its sovereignty like Kashmir, Khalistan and other conﬂicts in India's tribal belt, as well as protracted conﬂicts with its two major neighbours, China and Pakistan. The last section will question Indian parliamentary democracy in the context of raising inequalities, uneven growth, rapid urbanisation, gender discrimination, resilience of caste politics and the raise of threats against Muslim and Christian minorities. We will see how these social obstacles hamper the rising prospects of India today. Required reading : Introductory reading. Nehru, Jawaharlal.
