Greetings from the Centre for North East Studies and Policy Research, Jamia Millia Islamia as we launch the first of a series of events in the new semester at the University.
We are delighted to invite you to a talk on 'The Naga Peace Process and Taxation: The Battle for Accountability by ACAUT' by Mr. Khekhiye Sema, IAS (Rtd.), Senior Consultative Member, Against Corruption and Unabated Taxation (ACAUT) on 5 September, 2014. Mr. Kishalay Bhattacharjee, senior journalist and author, will be a discussant and I will chair.
The issue of ‘taxation’ which many call ‘extortion’ has troubled Nagaland and other states of the region for decades, raising questions about the pressures on the political structure of the State as well as the Society.
Please note the time -- 3 pm at the Seminar Room, Centre for North East Studies and Policy Research, (2nd floor, Annexe, Academy of international Studies) Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi-110025 (near Fortis-Escort Heart Institute)
