About the Symposium

Blog Symposium & Webinars on Law & Political Economy in India After COVID

The Indian political economy had been in a state of flux even before we became one of the worst-hit COVID-19 affected countries in the world. The coronavirus has aggravated several structural issues we had already been facing – bringing these issues to the fore for all policymakers to grapple with: revenue shortages, inflating expenditures, large-scale unemployment, dying businesses, a stagnant manufacturing sector, and amidst this – a breakdown of centre-state relations as governments negotiate the sharing of scarce revenue. Myriad legal and policy prescriptions have also been made to the government: to foster cooperation between the centre and states, to regulate the ever-widening size of the Gig or Informal Economy, labour reforms, rethinking environmental regulations, and so on. Many such key policy decisions have already been made by the governments, over the past weeks as the country wrestled with the pandemic. This webinar series cum blog symposium aims to analyse these choices in the context of three broad themes

  • Indian Federalism: Under this theme, the discussion will be on Fiscal federalism, Centre-state coordination, and Co-operative (state-state coordination) federalism. The speakers will closely look at how the centre and the state and states amongst themselves are coordinating the sharing of revenues and sharing of other responsibilities.
  • Gig Economy and the Law: Many day jobs, which were the usual employment opportunities are now being converted into gig work by modern startups (e.g. UrbanClap, Swiggy or Uber). Covid has further entrenched such work. But given the lack of job security, presence of bias, and lack of worker bargaining power, how do we use regulations to make the gig-market fair?
  • Neoliberalism and the Law: Efficiency (acting through strong property rights, deregulation and private contracts) has been touted as the best means to increase overall welfare by neoliberal policy-advisors. After Covid, the government has relied on such efficiency-based advice to modify environmental and labour regulations. The question then is whether efficiency indeed is fair and neutral? Or has neoliberalism captured our legal and political economy? How do we trace neoliberalism in the Indian Constitution? These are the questions the speakers will be critically looking at.

Eligibility 

The webinar is open to all students, professionals and persons interested in these themes.
