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.

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.

Funded by the UK’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
