Mit Dr. Saurabh Gupta, Rajiv Verma (Division of Social and Institutional Change in Agricultural Development, Uni Hohenheim) and Dr. Carsten Krinn (Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung BW)

The combined forces of liberalization, privatization and globalization, since the early 1990s, have transformed the Indian economy and society in an unprecedented fashion. While the elites and middle classes have reaped the benefits of this transformation, it is now quite evident that the vast majority of population, especially in rural India, has been further marginalized. On the one hand, farmer suicides have become a norm, and on the other, the country is witnessing a massive migration from villages to cities in search of wage employment, which does not exist. What are the underlying features of the crisis slowly unfolding in India today? To know and to reflect, please come and join the discussion.

Dr. Saurabh Gupta and Rajiv Verma are both working at the Divison of Social and Institutional Change in Agricultural Development at the University Hohenheim
