Political Economy of Tobacco Control

This is a research study aimed at understanding the role of the State and industry in tobacco control in post-1990s India. The research objectives are to (1) map public policies related to tobacco in this time period; (2) understand associations between policies and tobacco markets; (3) understand state and industry response to tobacco control policies; and (4) identifying regulatory scenarios that lead to significant reduction in tobacco use prevalence. It is a mixed-methods study that analyses a historical period through a range of techniques including interviews, documentary analysis, historiography, case studies.  

This study is supported by the India Alliance mid-career clinical and public health fellowship awarded to Upendra Bhojani
