About CCS

Centre for Civil Society (CCS) has been ranked amongst the top 60 think tanks in the world (and amongst the top 3 from India) by the University of Pennsylvania’s highly acclaimed annual Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program (TTCSP) report, for the past 5 years.

About eColloquium

Centre for Civil Society (CCS) is conducting an eColloquium on The Limits of Democracy on 22nd November 2020.

What is an eColloquium?

A CCS eColloquium is an online in-depth discussion centred on a chosen theme. The colloquium provides participants with an opportunity to disentangle themselves from the distractions of everyday life to reflect on issues of fundamental and enduring importance.

Unlike a conventional conference, eColloquium explores a specific theme by discussing a common reader (a curated collection of readings), that is read before the program. The shared inquiry is guided by a moderator who encourages thinking, asks probing questions, keeps things moving, but does not indulge in one-way monologues, lectures and does not advocate her/his own personal biases and interpretation of the texts. The purpose of the discussions is to challenge participants to examine, refine, and develop their own ideas by engaging with others.

About the Topic

Democracy was envisioned as a system to restrict the State and to minimise the conflicts of differences among people. However, it is pertinent to understand the genesis of this decision-making problem, the economics of consensus, and the relationship of State with the individual.

Can subjective individual interests be overshadowed by a democratic vote? In this eColloquium, we will explore the economics of democratic decision making, the role of ideology in Constitution-making, and the way in which Constitutions can incentivize market-based competition.

The eColloquium will seek to understand the aforementioned issues by reading and deliberating on the works of scholars like James Buchanan, Gordon Tollock, etc.

A Certificate of participation will be provided to the participants of eColloquium, who successfully attend and contribute to the discussions in all the sessions during the eColloquium.

Date:  22nd November 2020 (Sunday)

Time: 9:30 am to 6 pm IST (Lunch break and other breaks between sessions)

Applications Deadline:  25th October 2020

Fee: Rs. 500/-

The fee is payable upon selection and has to be made online.

Eligibility

All students, young professionals, policy enthusiasts as well as CCS’ alumni are encouraged to apply.

How to Apply?

Applications are accepted until midnight of 25th October 2020.
