India Policy Forum 2009–10 (Volume 6) comprises papers and highlights of the discussions from the sixth edition of the India Policy Forum (IPF) conference, held on July 14 and 15, 2009, in New Delhi. The annual examines India's reforms and economic transition using policy-relevant empirical research. It generates theoretically rigorous and empirically informed research on important current and unfolding issues of Indian economic policy. A joint publication of the National Council of Applied Economic Research in India and the Brookings Institution in the United States, the IPF serves as a forum for a global network of scholars interested in India's economic transformation.
The papers in this volume are primarily concerned with the recent global financial crisis and its implications for India. The events of 2009 provided evidence of India's growing integration with the global economy, an illustration of the resilience of country's economic growth, and its emergence as a major participant in an expanded system of governance for the global economic system.
The volume would be useful to researchers and policy-makers in the fields of economics, policy studies, development studies, and political economy.
