Centre for Power, Culture and Change (CPCC)



The Center seeks to move forward from conventional political analysis to (re) imagining and expanding the horizon of what constitutes the “political”. It would work with expanded notions of “democracy” that includes democratization of society and of “institutions” that are not restricted to the state and its organs. The manner in which modes of power and resistance structure and disrupt social ordering would be explored. Studies of Trade Unions, Civil Society Organizations, Community Based Empowerment initiatives as well the household are as much within the purview of this center. the crafting of modern institutions and their conduct and performance as well as the transformation of traditional organizations will merit consideration. Research on the modern state in its colonial and postcolonial forms constitutes an important agenda of the centre.
