The Journal of Agrarian Change has, since its inception, been concerned with rural labour relations. Not only have the varied characteristics of labour use been charted for historical and contemporary agrarian systems, the Journal has taken a strong interest in welfare outcomes for workers and in worker struggles. This virtual issue explores these themes, presenting classic and more recent articles. These articles seek to understand the political, social and material characteristics of rural labour relations, such as: class; gender; migration; ethnicity; differentiation; informality; value chains; and power. They show the continuing importance of understanding labour use, labour struggles and social reproduction.

The problem of unequal and exploitative agrarian systems and land tenure structures has been a major concern of the Journal of Agrarian Change since its foundation. The Journal also has a keen interest in publishing articles on the social struggles of peasants and rural workers for a just and equitable society. This virtual issue explores these social movements for land and justice, including those of women and indigenous peoples, as well as their differing and still unresolved outcomes. Hence the struggle continues in the contemporary context of neoliberal globalisation.
