Client Preferences in Broker Selection: Competition, Choice, and Informal Leadership in India’s Urban Slums

JOINT SEMINAR ON SOUTH ASIAN POLITICS SERIES
Client Preferences in Broker Selection: Competition, Choice, and Informal Leadership in India’s Urban Slums
Adam Auerbach, Assistant Professor, School of International Service, American University
Chair: Emmerich Davies, Assistant Professor of Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education

 

Auerbach’s research and teaching interests include the political economy of development, local governance and representation, and comparative political institutions, with a regional focus on South Asia and India in particular. His first book project examines informal community governance and development in India’s urban slums. The project draws on twenty months of ethnographic fieldwork, archival research, and an original survey he designed and administered in two north Indian cities. His research has been supported by the American Institute of Indian Studies, the Social Science Research Council, Fulbright-Hays, and the National Science Foundation. He received the 2013 Best Fieldwork Award from the Comparative Democratization Section of APSA, the 2014 Best Dissertation Award from the Urban Politics Section of APSA, and the 2015 Gabriel A. Almond Award for best dissertation in comparative politics. His work appears or is forthcoming in Contemporary South Asia, World Development, and World Politics.
