“There’s a massive social upsurge in India – but whether that can have an electoral impact remains to be seen.”
In this week’s episode, Grace Blakeley speaks to Vijay Prashad, head of the Tricontinental Institute for Social Research and author of Washington Bullets: A History of the CIA, Coups and Assassinations.
They discuss the recent wave of strikes taking place across India, the rise of the far right both there and across the world, and the mechanisms through which imperial power is exercised in today’s global economy – including the use of investor state dispute settlements by international investors to sue governments over their pandemic response.
