Maoist Insurgency in India

VIEW EVENT DETAILS  
Keynote Speaker:
Emmanuel Teitelbaum Assistant Professor of Political Science and International Affairs, George Washington University

The Maoist insurgency is currently the most dominant internal security threat grappling India. These Maoists are also known as Naxalites, as their first uprising began in 1967 in Naxalbari, a small village in the state of West Bengal. Emmanuel Teitelbaum's research examines the political roots of class conflict and the foundations of class compromise.
Teitelbaum's articles have appeared in leading journals, including World Politics, Comparative Political Studies, Political Research Quarterly, PS: Political Science & Politics, the Journal of Development Studies and Critical Asian Studies. His forthcoming book, Managing Dissent: Government Responses to Industrial Conflict in Post-Reform South Asia, explores the dynamics of state-labor relations and industrial conflict following the implementation of neoliberal economic reforms. Teitelbaum's research has received support from the United States Institute of Peace, the National Science Foundation, the Fulbright Foundation and the Social Science Research Council. He was the recipient of the 2007 Gabriel Almond Award for Best Dissertation in Comparative Politics. He holds a Ph.D. from Cornell University and a B.A. from John Carroll University.

This event is co-hosted with the Sigur Center for Asian Studies of the Elliot School of International Affairs at George Washington University.
