Ready for Take Off?


The last two decades, India experienced exorbitant economic growth and profound societal transformations.

From 2004 to 2013, India enjoyed the fastest economic expansion in its history with an average growth rate of more than 8% a year.

Yet, large parts of society still live in extreme poverty; social and economic reforms prove difficult.

In the last five years, Narendra Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) enjoyed a rare single-party parliamentary majority.

This year, the world’s biggest democracy goes to the polls.

From April 11 to May 19 the election is held and on May 23 the results will be published.

Despite a mixed record, Modi is likely to win a second term, but he might has to agree to a coalition government.

In conversation with James Crabtree and Ruth Kattumuri we will look at the outcome of the election and discuss the subsequent implications.

What do the results mean for India with regard to its capacity to change?

Will a new government be able to tackle India’s most pressing issues effectively – such as unemployment, especially amongst the ever-growing youth?

How can economic growth be maintained at a high level and be managed in a way that will lift as many people as possible out of poverty?
