From the Editor’s Desk


It is indeed a great honour for me to be associated with Economic & Political Weekly (EPW), as editor, and a privilege to do so at a stage when its reputation as a serious journal is completely secured. This is also due to the EPW team in particular for its judicious hard work, commitment and care, and the EPW community at large which through its labour of love has supported the journal in sustaining this unique position. The formal association with EPW as its editor, therefore, comes with a huge responsibility to invest in its space that offers not only to host but also to mobilise diverse and dissenting ideas; ideas that are so critical in understanding both the local and global contexts in the complex relationship between multiple political expressions and economic transformations. It has been EPW’s unique tradition to mobilise and filter ideas that flow towards it from different sites of critical thinking and radical practices of people.

It will be a reasonable exaggeration if one looks at the journal as an open university. Understandably, EPW does not impose its particular view but respects different standpoints that seek to converge on the common need to assign equal human value to every living being. Spaces in EPW thus are argumentative in their essence and critical in their articulation. These spaces house debates that are focused on many crucial issues of national and international importance.
