Last week we had the pleasure of hosting Shruti Kapila, Professor of Indian History and Global Political Thought at the University of Cambridge.

A roundtable on her recently published book, "Violent Fraternity: Indian Political Thought in the Global Age", was organised in collaboration with the Department of Political Science at Lund University.

In the book, Kapila analyses the political thought of key figures such as M.K.Gandhi, Muhammad Iqbal, B.R. Ambedkar and Sardar Patel. She approaches them foremost in terms of being innovative political thinkers, rather than mere political actors.

The other participants in the well-attended and truly fascinating roundtable was Jens Bartelson, Catarina Kinnvall and Ted Svensson.
