Maya Tudor speaks on democracy and nationalism

Maya Tudor, Associate Professor of Government and Public Policy, and currently a Fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (CASBS) at Stanford, was part of a round-table event on 'Reflections on elections in South Asia'.

The event brought together Professors Robert Crews (Stanford University), Maya Tudor (University of Oxford; CASBS Fellow), Saum Jha (Stanford University), and Ali Riaz (Illinois State University) to discuss issues concerning the recent elections, popular participation, and political regimes in the cases of Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and India. 

Tudor also delivered the talk "Can nationalism be a resource for democracy?" at The Interval in San Francisco, examining how foundational nationalisms affect democracy globally and using countries like India and Myanmar to illustrate that some kinds of nationalism can be an essential resource for protecting democracy.
