Ms. Vandita Mishra "is a journalist and member of the lead editorial team with the Indian Express, one of India's most prominent English-language daily newspapers. As the newspaper's senior assistant editor, she writes a weekly op-ed column called "Us and Them," which examines foreign media, as well as an occasional column on political issues for the editorial page. Prior to joining the Indian Express, she served as assistant editor at the Pioneer, another English-language daily, where she wrote a biweekly column for the editorial page. Her articles touch on a wide range of political issues and have also appeared in the Hindustan Times, the Tribune, and the journal Seminar. During her fellowship, Ms. Mishra is conducting a comparative study of political party systems, with a particular focus on India's party system and the cultivation of norms governing relations between parties when they unite to form coalition governments. Her project will result in a series of articles to be published in the newspaper for which she works."
