Social Movements, State and Democracy

Democracy Sarah Joseph A WORKSHOP on 'Social Movements, State and Democracy' organised by the Delhi University DSA Group on Politics of Developing Societies, the Sociology Group, Indian Statistical Institute, and the AKUT Group, University of Uppsala, Sweden, was held in Delhi in the first week of October 1992. The workshop brought together participants from India, Sweden, Africa and Indonesia and provided a forum for sharing the experience and understanding of scholars from these countries. It was both international and interdisciphnary but a common interest in processes of democratisation and social transformation ensured that discussions were focused on these themes; so some genuine exchange of views could take place. A number of seminars in India unfortunately seem to get drawn into highly structured patterns in which participants make formal and often predictable statements to, or at, each other but the Social Movements Workshop proved to be a happy exception to this practice.
