Raza Ahmad Rumi on The State of Democracy in South Asia

Raza Ahmad Rumi, Scholar-in-Residence, Ithaca College;  Visiting Fellow, National Endowment for Democracy;  News and Features Editor, The Friday Times - Pakistan

India, Pakistan and Bangladesh are currently grappling with contests of national identity, religious extremism and increasingly irrelevant colonial state structures. The idea of democracy is challenged by rise of religious nationalism in India, one-party rule in Bangladesh and the security measures which have curtailed civil liberties in Pakistan. Rumi will discuss the current trends, the underlying structural issues and future possibilities.

Open to the public.
