Call for Paper Proposals- Development Studies

Within the field of Developmental Studies, the Conference looks to examine the conflicts arising out of ethnic differences. What are the forces that bind the peoples of a country to  form a nation? How influential are power hierarchies in the functioning of a society? Do those in power truly play the role of internal colonizers? Could disparity between ethnicity and nationality lead to a conflict of identity? What role does the State play in this scenario? Does high ethnic diversity make South Asia different from the rest of the world?
