True Scholarship


EPW is central to the intellectual traditions of India and beyond, to South Asia and the global South. It is a forum for intellectual exchange, critical thinking, and generation of ideas.EPW has laid the foundations of a unique Indian and South Asian social science that builds on the shoulders of the best intellectual traditions of the past, and yet keeps the windows open to ideas from across the globe. But, that is not all. It transcends across disciplines. The finest articles on international relations, foreign policy, and specific area studies from China, Latin America, Russia, Africa, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka by Indian and South Asian scholars can be found here since it started 50 years ago.

By combining theory, interpreting practice, and intervening by taking a normative position,EPW signifies true scholarship. It is essential to readEPW to understand the idea of India and the conceptualisation of South Asia. No understanding of the global South can be complete without using this source.EPW gives students and analysts a view of the world. It does not shy away from taking significant political positions. The intellectuals of South Asia and indeed the world need to contribute in whatever way they can to uphold and take this tradition calledEPW forward.
