Ecologies of justice

How we understand justice as a value, ethic, principle or practice is mediated through relationships and systems that cross historical, political, economic, social, spatial and environmental domains. These intersecting domains shape how justice works, or struggles to be expressed. Research in this program helps us to comprehend the complex ecologies that contribute to, transform, or undermine justice through:

  • Geopolitics
  • Systems of governance and regulation
  • Disability and inclusion
  • Place, space and spatial justice
  • Flows of information, people, goods and services
  • The well-being of the planet and species that inhabit it
  • Social change and activism
