Researching Justice

Understanding justice, for many, begins with questions of injustice. This volume pushes us to consider the extent to which our scholarly and everyday practices are, or can become, socially just. In this edited collection, international contributors reflect on what the practice of ‘justice’ means to them, and discuss how it animates and shapes their research across diverse fields from international relations to food systems, political economy, migration studies and criminology.

Giving insights into real life research practices for scholars at all levels, this book aids our understanding of how to employ and live justice through our work and daily lives.

Agatha Herman is Senior Lecturer in Human Geography in the School of Geography and Planning at Cardiff University. She is the series editor of Spaces and Practices of Justice.

Joshua Inwood is Professor of Geography and African American Studies and Senior Scientist in the Rock Ethics Institute at Pennsylvania State University.
