The Centre for the Study of Social Justice is a forum for Oxford’s distinguished grouping of political theorists to share their expertise, collaborate on research projects, and publicise their work to the broader academic and policy-making community.
Questions of social justice cover a wide range: philosophical and practical, theoretical and applied, global and domestic. Encompassing this variety, the Centre for the Study of Social Justice provides a unique opportunity for cutting-edge intellectual exchange on a subject of fundamental political significance.
The Centre aims to make connections and build bridges: between different aspects of the theoretical study of social justice; with other disciplines such as Philosophy, Law, Economics, Sociology and Social Policy; and with the ‘real world’ of politicians and think-tanks.
The Centre welcomes applications to visit from academics at institutions in the UK and overseas, advanced doctoral research students, and those with a professional or academic interest in social justice. It particularly welcomes applications from those wishing to hold post-doctoral fellowships at the Centre.
