In 2014, 25% of BJP's seats came from UP. Now SP & BSP have joined forces to defeat BJP. What does this mean for the BJP's chances in UP in 2019? I analyze by taking a look back in history (little known fact -- coalitions often do better than the sum of their individual parties)

Candidates from scheduled caste and tribal communities have rarely been fielded in non-reserved constituencies and even if they are, they are most likely independents. @vinuthewriter breaks some numbers down based on @TCPD_Ashoka data. @the_hindu #Datapoint

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.
