Time: 6.30pm
Venue
: Old Theatre, Old Building
Speaker: Montek Singh Ahluwalia
Discussant: Professor Lord Desai
Chair: Howard Davies

As the world's largest democracy, India faces the challenges of globalisation in a unique way. It has adopted a strategy of inclusion in its politics and of liberalisation in its economic policy. Yet this combination poses its own problems.

This lecture is in memory of Dr Indraprasad Gordhanbhai (I.G) Patel who was the ninth director of the London School of Economics, serving as director from 1984 to 1990.

Montek Singh Ahluwalia is deputy chairman of the Indian Planning Commission, a position he has held since July 2004. Prior to this he worked at the International Monetary Fund and has held several positions in the Indian Government.

Lord Meghnad Desai is an emeritus professor of LSE.
