My guest today is Christophe Jaffrelot, a CERI-CNRS Senior Research Fellow who teaches in three different schools at Sciences Po in Paris. He is a world-leading scholar of Indian politics, from its foreign policy to its political sociology. In 2020, he was elected president of the French Association of Political Science (AFSP), and last year, he published the incredibly detailed but still very readable book Modi’s India: Hindu Nationalism and the Rise of Ethnic Democracy with Princeton University Press. Today, we will speak about this terrifying study of contemporary India. You can follow Christophe Jaffrelot on Twitter at @jaffrelotc.
