Democratization and political parties
Public service delivery
Dasgupta studies the political economy of development. His book project and articles examine the historical and organizational roots of why parties succeed or fail at incorporating new groups in democratizing societies. A second set of projects investigates the politics of public service delivery failure in developing countries, including a series of surveys in India.
