Excited to discuss my research with @TCPD_Ashoka this time next week! https://t.co/woES0MFWGF

If you wander which election book to read (or not to read) this season, I review a bunch of them in this issue of India Today. Disclaimer: I did not write the blurb of Dr. Yaqoob Quraishi's book, since I have a chapter in it. https://t.co/UFAzDGHTch

Project MUSE - Pakistan: Voting Under Military Tutelage https://t.co/4Gbd3DRK3p

“India never had a woman Election Commissioner but Nepal has,” admits @DrSYQuraishi “There are many things we can learn from Nepal.” #GreatMarchOfDemocracy

By far, election commission is the most trusted institution in the country, says @gilkumar. No system is ever infallible, there are possibilities of error, but statistically, the errors are insignificant. #GreatMarchOfDemocracy

Trivedi Centre for Political Data

TCPD hosted its first conference on Empirical and Computational Methods to Study Indian Politics. Teams and colleagues from Michigan, PRIO, Notre Dame and others discussed questions and methods over two days, and held a computational workshop for social sciences on the third.

Three concrete outcomes emerged from this meeting:
1. TCPD will work to set up sharable standards in data collection and political data handling.
2. TCPD will invite collaborations to build high standards datasets on various aspects of India’s democracy (elections, public goods delivery, contentious politics)
3. This will start with a formal partnership with PRIO to build an event-based dataset on contentious politics in India.

Looking forward to much good work and calling on friends, scholars and students to help us in these endeavours.
