COLLOQUIUM ON "LIBERALISM IN INDIA"
CCS Colloquium is a two-day residential forum, exclusively for our alumni, to participate in-depth discussion on contemporary issues faced by India today.
In this Colloquium, we will explore the state of liberalism in India and the challenges faced by fellow liberals. The discussion will draw on works of Indian liberal thinkers from the past and the present, creating a holistic dialogue on how to pave the way to a freer and more liberal India.
The colloquium provides an opportunity for the alumni to disentangle themselves from distractions and reflect on issues of fundamental and enduring importance. Participants attending the colloquium explore a specified and pre-determined theme together by discussing texts read in advance. Their shared inquiry will be guided by a discussion leader.
