(2nd in series of 3 case studies on democracy in India)

Dear friends,
We are happy to share with you all a case study that examines the extent 
and nature of democracy in Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council 
(LAHDC) both in its relation to the State and internally as well. During 
the period of the study, mid- to late-2019, the status of Ladakh changed 
dramatically from being a pair of districts within a state (Jammu and 
Kashmir) to becoming a Union Territory. The study looks only briefly at 
the implications of the new status, as this happened during the latter 
part of the study.

We would be happy to get your comments and thoughts!

“Like vanishing dew,
a passing apparition
or the sudden flash
of lightning -- already gone --
thus should one regard one's self.”
