The Limits of Judicialization: From Progress to Backlash in Latin American Politics
Sandra Botero, Universidad de Rosario
Daniel Brinks, The University of Texas at Austin
Ezequiel González-Ocantos, University of Oxford
Raúl Sánchez-Urribarri, La Trobe University
We will discuss the chapter "Working in new political spaces: the checkered history of Latin American judicialization," from the book The Limits of Judicialization: From Progress to Backlash in Latin American Politics edited by Sandra Botero, Daniel Brinks, and Ezequiel González-Ocantos.
The discussion will be in English.
My presentation will offer a historical perspective on secularism in South Asia through a discussion of a history of religious reform movements from the early twentieth century through the end of colonial India, as a way of historicizing the creation of a constitutional secular state in India in the mid-twentieth century. Though Indian history will comprise the base of the presentation, it will address the issue of religious freedom in contemporary South Asia, drawing on cases from India and Bangladesh primarily. I will mention a few thematic issues that inform the South Asian region as a whole, such as the role of religion in constitutions of South Asian states and the different ways minorities have been legally categorized by the state, as these developments draw on a shared history of colonialism in South Asia.
