Justice, Rights & Equality
Our activities under this theme seek to develop new understanding of the tensions at the interface between global norms and local attempts to realise justice, rights and equality.
We foster international collaboration in the humanities and social sciences, and promote the sharing of international perspectives on global challenges.
This programme situates justice, rights and equality in their material contexts in place and time, seeking to also index different disciplinary perspectives – from the philosophical, ethical and historical to the geographic and legal. It seeks to encourage creative thinking as to the innovative language and spaces needed for pursuing ideas of the common good in an unstable world.
The various projects which we carry out under this theme provide policy-relevant, cross-regional and interdisciplinary insights into issues related, but not limited, to: the UN’s 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, human rights in post-conflict situations, gender equality, borders and migration.

The projects funded under this programme aim to bring new research ideas and methods to bear on understanding the UK’s international challenges – past, current and future.
This programme funds researchers in the humanities and social sciences working on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and generating evidence on the challenges and opportunities faced in developing countries.
The programme supports projects which engage with questions concerning the relationship between expertise, public understanding and policy delivery, and highlight the importance of collaboration between communities of practice, disciplines, capacities and borders.
