Final Reflections on the Farmers’ Movement – Editorial Team

Spring 2022
Special Section on Farmers Movement in India

In India, such policies date back to at least the 1990s and the shift to “liberalize” India.<sup><a name=”sdfootnote1anc” href=”#sdfootnote1sym”><sup>1</sup></a></sup> As documented in the two previous issues published by <em>Sikh Research Journal</em>, the farmers’ movement witnessed participation from a cross section of the Indian population, cutting across societal, professional and geographical barriers.
