On 2nd December, Vidhi organized ‘A Panel Discussion on Cooperative Federalism’ – From Rhetoric to Reality. The event was in collaboration with Bangalore International Centre and Indian Institute for Human Settlements.
Vidhi invited Dr. M. Govinda Rao (Member, 14th Finance Commission), Mr. Nandan Nilekani (Former Chairman, UIDAI) and Ms. Srijoni Sen (Lead, Public Law, Vidhi) to share their unique insights into the inner workings of Indian federalism from an economic and a governance perspective.
The discussion saw a lively engagement, through examples and experiences shared by the speaker, of how cooperative federalism could be better understood in the Indian context, and what it might mean in the years to come.
The discussion was moderated by Dr. Arghya Sengupta (Research Director, Vidhi).
