The Institute of Commonwealth Studies will be running the first of the decolonization workshops for 2012-13 at Senate House on Friday 16 November. The day will run from 10.30am to 7.30pm and will culminate with the launch of Dr Harshan Kumarasingham’s new book, A Political Legacy of the British Empire: Power and the Parliamentary System in Post-Colonial India and Sri Lanka (I.B.
