Institute for Social Justice

Working across our University we facilitate social justice research, projects and partnerships that help us to pursue and promote a fairer society.

Institute for Social Justice logo

The Institute for Social Justice was launched in 2020 to underpin York St John University’s mission to stand up for social justice'.

We do so through developing collaborative research and practice that seeks to identify, expose and address some of the inequalities, injustices and challenges facing society today.

At its core the Institute seeks to work with people, with partners and with communities in a manner that sees participation, implementation and change as vital parts of its mission.
