The Institute for Social Justice is a creative space for thinking about and responding to the challenges we face in the 21st Century.

New insights, intellectual excitement and alternative pathways for action emerge when we question what we have taken for granted.

Our research activities combine original normative reflection with diverse forms of action research. We aim to expand our horizons of understanding and disclose new possibilities for living together in the challenging conditions of our era.
