    Math with CCP Characteristics

    Creating slogans using numbers is one of the distinctive features of the Communist Party of China’s discourse strategy. In more recent years, one would have probably encountered phrases like the “two safeguards” or the “four self-confidences.” Why is it that the Party uses such a communications strategy? Also, what are the ideas that lie behind such slogans? In this episode, Pranay Kotasthane and Manoj Kewalramani decode the math of CCP slogans.

    Can sustainable cities create more jobs?

    Can sustainable cities create more jobs?

    Building new cities is often viewed as a plausible solution to the unemployment crisis. However, recently built cities in India are not sustainable enough to keep creating jobs in the long run. A missed opportunity or lack of planning?
    Anupriya Mohta and Sudisha Mishra discuss the role of sustainability in building new cities with a special focus on Gurugram.

    Overcoming learning losses- lessons from the Tamil Nadu experiment

    Overcoming learning losses- lessons from the Tamil Nadu experiment

    Primary education was one of the areas that was affected negatively by the COVID19 pandemic. India saw some of the harshest lockdowns and schools were the first to close and last to open leading to huge learning losses. As with most other disasters, this loss was pronounced in lower SECs and girls. The state of TN has introduced a programme called Illam Thedi Kalvi (ITK) to help recover learning losses. Sarthak Pradhan and Suman Joshi summarize findings of a new working paper titled -COVID-19 Learning Loss and Recovery: Panel Data Evidence from India- Abhijeet Singh, Mauricio Romero, and Karthik Muralidharan and discuss possible implications for policy making

    Online Privacy 101 to Commemorate 5 Years of the Puttaswamy Judgement

    Online Privacy 101 to Commemorate 5 Years of the Puttaswamy Judgement

    It’s been 5 years since the Puttaswamy judgement on privacy. India’s data protection bill which came about as a result of this judgement has been in the works for the past 4 years. There has been a lot of pushback against some sections of the bill by privacy advocates and tech companies. This bill was recently withdrawn from parliament citing the need for a more comprehensive review. While we wait for a comprehensive data protection framework, Bharath Reddy talks with Bhavya Birla about what you can do to safeguard your data and privacy online.
    Bhavya Birla is a Research Associate at The Dialogue. He pursued his undergraduate degree in law from Symbiosis Law School, Noida and holds diplomas in Cyber Law and International Law & Diplomacy from GLC, Mumbai and Indian Society of International Law respectively. His areas of interest cover informational privacy, privacy regulation, data flows, encryption etc. He is a proponent of digital privacy, freedom, and safety for all.
