Research

Pritish’s research focusses on the politics of late development in the 21st century. So far, the bulk of his fieldwork has centred on examining elite politics, state-business relations and productive sector policies in Rwanda. He is currently developing a similar study in Ethiopia. Pritish has also begun researching the capacity of technology acquisition among local firms in India’s renewable energy sector (in particular, the solar energy sector). He also works on examining the politics of public sector reforms in developing countries.
