The new Indian state: The relocation of patronage in the post-liberalisation economy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Describing the relocation of the patronage-based relationship between the state and the private sector in post-liberalisation India, this article goes on to address the consequences of this relationship for democracy. It points out that the continued dependence of a reconstituted private sector on patronage relations with a reconstituted state can reinforce an investment in procedural democracy, but may at the same time subvert the substantive aspects of democracy.
