Deliberative Democracy and the Politics of Redistribution: The Case of the Indian Panchayats

Hypatia 22 (4):64-80 (2007)

Abstract
By examining evidence from India, where quotas for women in local government were introduced in 1993, this article argues that institutional reform can disturb hegemonic discourses sufficiently to open a window of opportunity where deliberative democratic norms take root and where, in addition to the politics of recognition, the politics of redistribution also operates.
