Comparative Subnational Research Projects
Multiple projects using a comparative subnational framework are being planned across different policy & governance domains. The projects are:
- Explaining Village-level Variation in Education: A Quantitative-Qualitative Study in Chhattisgarh and Karnataka (Suraj Jacob & Balmurli Natrajan), 3-year project
- Maternal Health in Assam and Meghalaya – A Comparative Perspective (Sreeparna Ghosh, Suraj Jacob, and Arima Mishra), 2-year project
- The Institutional System in School Education: A Study of Monitoring, Regulation, and Activism in Rajasthan in a Comparative Framework (Rahul Mukhopadhyay, Sujatha Rao, Rishikesh B. S., and Suraj Jacob), 2-year project
- Pathways to Political Power: An Inter-State and Intra-State Comparison of Karnataka and Odisha (Narayana A., Suraj Jacob, and Sailen Routray), 2-year project
Each project will produce multiple research papers that will be disseminated through both scholarly routes (journal articles and edited books) and non-scholarly routes (newspaper reports and workshops with policy-makers).
