About the Journal of Peasant Studies

A leading journal in the field of rural politics and development, The Journal of Peasant Studies provokes and promotes critical thinking about social structures, institutions, actors and processes of change in and in relation to the rural world.

It fosters inquiry into how agrarian power relations between classes and other social groups are created, understood, contested and transformed. JPS pays special attention to questions of ‘agency’ of marginalized groups in agrarian societies, particularly their autonomy and capacity to interpret – and change – their conditions.
