Ep. 89: सामाजिक न्याय की क़श्मक़श. Affirmative Action in India.

Deborah Stone in her textbook Policy Paradox, describes the paradox of distribution thus: “equality often means inequality, and equal treatment often means unequal treatment. The same distribution may look equal or unequal, depending on where you focus.”

So in this #By2 episode, Saurabh and Pranay discuss affirmative action and the paradox of distribution in India. They discuss the dominant modes of affirmative action, the difference between fairness and equality, and the impossibility of designing an affirmative action that is equal in all respects.

इस एपिसोड में प्रणय और सौरभ चर्चा कर रहे हैं आरक्षण, कोटा जैसे सामाजिक न्याय के तरीकों पर।
