Much of Professor Wilkinson’s work focuses on India and ethnic violence. His book, Votes and Violence: Electoral Competition and Ethnic Riots in India was co-winner of the American Political Science Association’s 2005 Woodrow Wilson prize for the best book published in government, politics and international affairs. We talk with Professor Wilkinson about his current book project on Colonization, Democracy and Conflict.
