Delve into the greatest challenge facing India’s democracy since British colonial rule in 1947 with the incarceration of the BK-16.

In a searing investigation into Indian fascism, cyber warfare and tech surveillance versus minority activism and resistance, Professor Alpa Shah will chart the collapse of the world’s largest democracy through the story of the incarceration and the on-going trial of 16 human rights defenders–professors, lawyers, journalists, poets–and their fight for justice.

Chaired by Professor Simone Abram (Durham University)
