Special Forums

JPS publishes rolling special forums on pressing political and intellectual issues. These forums are a space for debate, research and exploration on topics ranging from the Indian farmer protests to rethinking agrarian Marxism, peasant organizing in Myanmar, and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Grassroots Voices

The Journal of Peasant Studies publishes Grassroots Voices – views that are written and presented in a non-academic style which provide important insights and information relevant to critical rural development studies. Grassroots Voices are intended to share wisdom and analysis direct from social movements, practitioners, and scholar-activists.
