Professor Craig Jeffrey and Dr. Jane Dyson are based at the School of Geography and the Environment at Oxford University. They work on questions around youth and social change in modern India. The three working papers here, one sole authored by Craig and two joint papers, examine different aspects of social transformation with particular reference to young people aged 18-30. The papers show how youth can provide a lens through which to think about many of the key changes affecting modern India.
India in the Eyes of Others aims to explore vantage points from around the world on a rising India. This project will draw together scholarly readings of how India is understood and imagined from different country perspectives, and through the prism of a number of globally significant issues. This first edited volume in the project will focus on official, governmental perspectives of India.
