Global Ethics Weekly: Violence & Nationalism in India & the U.S., with Suchitra Vijayan

January 31, 2019

As founder and executive director of The Polis Project, a research and journalism organization, Suchitra Vijayan is helping to document a concerning trend of identity-based violence in India. She discusses her organization's work on this issue, the violence's connection to a rise in nationalism in India since Prime Minister Modi came to power, and some imperfect parallels with the contentious political climate in the United States.

For more from Vijayan, check out The Polis Project. This podcast references her interview with Indian journalist Sagar, who has reported on identity- and caste-based violence.

Vijayan has also appeared on two Carnegie New Leader podcasts and in a public Carnegie Council event in 2014.
