The NRAS was established in 2010, motivated by the twin objectives of (a) reinvigorating the study of agrarian and rural issues in India’s academic institutions and enabling scholars to engage with a range of pressing issues and ideas  (b) influencing the pedagogy and curriculum of academic institutions to encompass rural and agrarian issues. This website aims to serve as a hub for communication, interaction and exchange for network members. We invite you to become part of this network and contribute to our collective effort. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text][show_news]
