Participants will be able to interact with policymakers and practitioners working on India during this interactive conference, and they can also choose to participate in a research showcase.


The India Initiative is honored to host an array of distinguished speakers including Chief Economic Advisor to the Government of India Arvind Subramanian, Co-Chair of the Senate India Caucus Senator Mark Warner, former U.S. Ambassador to India Rich Verma, Senior Fellow at the Carnegie Endowment of International Peace Ashley Tellis, member of Madhya Pradesh’s fourteenth Vidhan Sabha Jaivardan Singh, Asia Director at the Environmental Defense Fund Richie Ahuja, and Director of Cities and Neighborhood Developments at the U.S. Green Building Council Vatsal Bhatt.

Sponsor(s): Embassy of India, Washington DC

Event: Constitution Day 2016: "The Making of India's Constitution: American Influences and Contributions" - lecture by Vikram Raghavan
Free Registration: http://campaign.r20.constantcontact.com/render?m=1115496907910&ca=382965b9-323c-49f8-93d6-1100a4e27bd5

This day seventy years ago, India's Constituent Assembly convened for the first time in New Delhi. Over the next three years, the Assembly drafted, debated, and adopted the world's longest written constitution. That charter serves as the bedrock of India's democracy and guides the destinies of its more than a billion citizens. In erecting a republic, India's founders drew considerably upon the practices, traditions, lessons and experiences of the United States' constitution. Incorporating archival work and photographs, this talk will examine America's contributions to the making and working of India's constitution. Besides exploring the historical connections between the two countries, the talk will emphasize the common constitutional features, values, and commitments that the two democracies share.


Vikram Raghavan


Vikram Raghavan is a lawyer at an international organization in Washington, DC. Beyond his professional commitments, Vikram remains deeply engaged in Indian constitutional law and history. Several years ago, Vikram created and now contributes to Law and Other Things, a widely read blog on Indian constitutional law. He has authored a book titled Communications Law in India (LexisNexis 2006) and co-edited a volume of essays: Comparative Constitutionalism in South Asia (Oxford University Press 2013). Presently, Vikram is working on an Oxford Shorter Introduction to India's Legal System. Over the medium term, Vikram hopes to write a detailed narrative account about how India became a constitutional republic in 1950. 

Vikram lectures regularly at Indian law schools and before other audiences about India's founding as a republic and its constitutional history.
