About TGC

Technology is central to new modes of governance, and to emerging definitions of citizenship, participation, and progress. As state functions get automated through e-governance, experiences get codified, and paradigms of knowledge production come under the digital eye, the notions of governance and citizenship are changing.

This ongoing discussion explores questions at the intersection of technology and society in contemporary India, bringing together researchers and practitioners from a wide range of technical and social scientific backgrounds. Its aim is not so much to reiterate the conventional definitions of development, technology, transparency, and governance, but to unpack the construction of these terms in a way that allows us to make sense of the new practices of governance, and of contemporary politics, law and citizenship.
