The Indo-French Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IFCCI) in association with Sciences Po, a world leading university in social sciences, is organizing an exclusive Panel discussion on ‘Nation building & Nationalism: a comparison between India and Europe’ in Mumbai.

Profile of Dr Christophe Jaffrelot

India and most of the European countries have a two-fold definition of nationalism and nation-building. Nationalism is a bicephal figure with a territorial and secular face on one hand and ethnic one on the other. Nation-building also offers a dual pattern, with a centralized power vs a federal model. How do the four boxes of this matrix translate in India and Europe?  This question resonates strongly today, with India and Europe facing similar political trends: ethnic nationalism at the expense of the minorities and more concentration of power at the expense of democracy.
