Harvard South Asia Institute Book Talk

Arndt Michael, University of Freiburg
Chair: Tarun Khanna, Director, South Asia Institute; Jorge Paulo Lemann Professor, Harvard Business School

Winner of the Association of Third World Studies’ Cecil B. Currey Book Award and the German-Indo Society’s Gisela Bonn Award 2013

“Arndt Michael, India’s Foreign Policy and Regional Multilateralism (UK: Palgrave, MacMillan, 2013). It is an important topic especially with regard to the developing world.  It is logically written and allows even non-specialists to grasp the basic topic.  It is based on thorough knowledge of the existing literature and incorporates significant new original materials that make this a must read. Indeed, it provides a tight and clear analysis that provides important concepts that build a foundation for the future study of the general topic. Worth reading, especially if you are interested in modern Indian foreign policy.  To be sure, it is a topic Americans should be interested in, most especially our leaders!” Dr. William Head, Chair of the Selection Committee, Cecil B. Currey Book Award

South Asia Without Borders Seminar

Bina Agarwal, Professor of Development Economics and Environment, University of Manchester
Chair: Sheila Jasanoff, Pforzheimer Professor of Science and Technology Studies, Harvard Kennedy School

 

Can the gender composition of groups managing local forests affect conservation outcomes? This simple question has been little addressed, despite the substantial literature on women’s representation in public decision-making and the growing research on local environmental governance. Economists studying environmental collective action have paid little attention to the question of gender. Research on gender and green governance in other disciplines has focused mainly on women’s near absence from community forestry institutions. This talk reverses that focus to ask: what if women were present in these institutions? Would that affect conservation? Tracing the history of women’s absence from environmental governance to their negotiated presence, and based on primary data from communities managing local forests in India and Nepal, the talk will provide some answers.
