Just Worlds

Our researchers share a commitment to understanding how geography shapes and structures multiple forms of justice and injustice with a view to creating more just worlds. As such our research is guided by an activist ethos that bridge a theory and practice, something we do through diverse collaborations and participation with civil society and social movements. Our approach to the geographies of justice is grounded in an ethic that works towards decolonising the geopolitics of knowledge production, especially through a long-term commitment to working with scholars and activists in the global souths. We are organised around three core sub-themes, although these are inter-related and not distinct areas of research.
