This issue contains a 6-article symposium on violence and peace in India.

The symposium is introduced by guest editor Rupayan Gupta. Our authors are Gaurav KhannaLaura ZimmermannSaurabh SinghalSofia Amaral, Siddhartha Bandyopadhyay, Samrat BhattacharyaRudra SensarmaKuhuk Bhushan, Prakarsh Singh, Nilanjana Sengupta, Dolon Ganguly, Rikhil Bhavnani, and Saumitra Jha.
