Capturing Institutional Change

The Case of the Right to Information Act in India

Himanshu Jha, Series edited by Rahul Mukherjee, Subrata K. Mitra, and Raghbendra Jha

  • Presents an alternative history of the evolution of RTI specifically and about the right-based legislations in India generally
  • Uses historical institutionalism, layering, and tipping point to explain institutional change, which has not been used by scholars working on South Asia
  • Institutional change has mostly been discussed in the context of economic change, this book applies it to the realm of social rights
