Constitutional Resilience in South Asian Democracies

Centre Member: Tarun Khaitan

This project examines the design of constitutional institutions and connections with the resilience of democracy. So far, the project has produced papers concerning the threat that plutocracy poses to democratic constitutionalism, non-judicial forms of constitutional defence, and the subtler - incremental - assaults that established democracies have witnessed in recent years. A podcast on the last topic can be heard here.
