Development, Policy and Agriculture in India in the 1990s


  • Barbara Harriss-White


Policy tends to be depoliticised in development discourse. In this paper Bernard Schaffer's framework for the political analysis of policy is recalled and developed. Repoliticising policy involves the analysis of four overlapping political fields: those of agenda, procedure, resources and access. The framework is applied to the politics of the agricultural policy agenda over the recent past in India, and with special reference to Tamil Nadu state.
