Welfare schemes, the state and corruption in South Asia: quantitative and qualitative approaches

International Workshop, June 19 - 20, 2017

Beschreibung

In its bid to alleviate poverty, the Indian state has been providing citizens with a growing range of welfare entitlements—ranging from pensions, housing plots, free midday meals, employment guarantees through the NREGA scheme, and subsidized rations. However the extent to which these entitlements have reached their intended beneficiaries has varied across states, and across regions within states. In this conference, international scholars from across several disciplines will seek to explain why particular schemes have or haven’t been successfully implemented in different Indian contexts.

Scholars interested in a medium-term collaboration on these topics across disciplinary boundaries, and in participating at the workshop as presenters or in some other capacity are invited to contact Monika Noser: monika.noser@pw.uzh.ch
