The Series is a collaboration of Routledge and the M.S. Merian – R. Tagore International Centre of Advanced Studies ‘Metamorphoses of the Political’ (ICAS:MP). It aims to publish books that explores core issues that are of concern in modern globalized societies.

Instead of the political system or politics in the narrow sense, this Series explores questions of what constitutes the ‘political’ in the contemporary environment. The volumes concentrate on multiple areas of politicisation: the role, forms and advances of civil society and social movements, the politicisation of law and rights, the drive for the democratisation of democracy, including modal changes of democratic procedures, and the diversification of forms of governance regarding state and non-state actors. Forms of social and political exclusion and questions of recognition and justice are covered.

The Series mainly feature edited volumes incorporating innovative social science research on the above themes. These volumes offer cross-disciplinary insights where collaboration of many top-ranking scholars on a single topic ensure state-of-the field studies. These are highly focussed with contributing chapters that link to the overarching theme of the respective volumes. A strong Introduction not only introduces the chapters and draw linkages between them, but bring new ideas and insights to the fore.

ICAS:MP is an Indo-German research collaboration of six Indian and German institutions. It combines the benefits of an open, interdisciplinary forum for intellectual exchange with the advantages of a cutting-edge research centre. Located in New Delhi, ICAS:MP critically intervenes in global debates in the social sciences and humanities.
