Contributions from external scholars will take the form of participation in conferences and workshops of the Research Group and a set working papers on the theme.

The Research Group will initially be funded by the India Research Programme of the Max Weber Stiftung, with some participatory, proportionate funding for events in India by project partners in India.

The project will start 1 October 2017 for an initial period of two years, to be extended subject to funding availability, to three years. The possibility of a further extension of up to two years will be discussed, subject to the availability of fund
