About the Institute and Conference

SVKM’s Pravin Gandhi College of Law, Mumbai is conducting a Two-Day Online National Conference on ‘Dimensions of Democracy’.

The concept of democracy is central to our contemporary political lexicon, yet agreement on how to conceptualize democracy is far from realization. In an era of fluctuating collective identities and divergent dogmas, societies are increasingly becoming a randomized toolbox of inconsistent identities.

  • The changing character of identities, fault lines and representative politics give rise to a number of questions that deserve a closer examination: In what ways are conflict structures and democratic institutions changing?
  • Are we witnessing a period of de-politicization and apathy, or re-politicization and novel forms of engagement? Is there strength in populist movements?
  • Does local politics undermine or overwhelm national identities? How participative is participative democracy?

Dates: 8th and 9th August 2020
