An additional focus of the conference would be on state practices and reactions or resistances of the people to the state-making practices in historical and contemporary times. The processes of electoral democracy, neoliberal economic policies and how these processes have brought different dynamics to the state-society relations, increasing demands for reservation and autonomy will also be discussed.
