In his new e book In Search of New Social Democracy: Insights from the South—Implications for the North (Zed-Bloomsbury), Olle Törnquist has returned to findings from fifty years of analysis on democracy and social rights actions in particularly Indonesia, India and the Philippines, to deal with the key puzzle of our time: why the imaginative and prescient about growth based mostly on social justice by democratic means has misplaced floor, and if there are openings.
On this episode of the Nordic Asia Podcast Kenneth Bo Nielsen is joined by Olle Törnquist to debate the principle outcomes and arguments in what he calls his endbook.
Olle Törnquist is a Swedish international historian and Professor Emeritus of Politics and Growth on the College of Oslo, Norway. He has written extensively on radical politics, growth and democratisation.
The Nordic Asia Podcast is a collaboration sharing experience on Asia throughout the Nordic area, dropped at you by the Nordic Institute of Asian Research (NIAS) based mostly on the College of Copenhagen, together with our educational companions: the Centre for East Asian Research on the College of Turku, Asianettverket on the College of Oslo, and the Stockholm Centre for International Asia at Stockholm College.
We goal to supply well timed, topical and well-edited discussions of recent analysis and developments about Asia.
