With COVID-19 cases and deaths surging in India, a Johns Hopkins University expert is available to offer context and perspective on the crisis.

Michael Levien: A sociologist specializing in India, Levien can discuss what he considers the Indian government’s mishandling of the crisis, as well as the background developmental conditions that are exacerbating the problem.

A former visiting professor at the Institute of Economic Growth, New Delhi, Levien’s work focuses on the political sociology and agrarian political economy of India, in particular the inequality and economic development of the region.
