The Political Economy of Green Growth in India
This paper offers an analytic overview of the Indian's alternative or sustainable development trajectories and of the more mainstream policy decisions regarding high growth rates. It also addresses how contemporary green or sustainable development approaches tend to lean toward neoliberal principles, thereby compromising their effectiveness. The two central issues that this paper explores are: (1) to what extent policy frameworks in India are consistent with the stated objective of growth and sustainability; and (2) how these frameworks play out in specific locations and conjectures.
