Surupa Gupta, professor of Political Science and International Affairs, discussed India’s farmers’ protests on the Deep Dish podcast hosted by Brian Hanson at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. India’s farmers have been protesting three laws that the Indian Parliament passed in September 2020: the laws open up farm produce marketing to various private sector actors, limiting the role and the reach of government regulations.

Gupta also published a piece on the strength of farmers as a political force in India in The Conversation, a non-profit, independent, open-access news source.
