Sydney Social Justice Network
The Sydney Social Justice Network (SSJN) is an initiative at the University of Sydney, funded by the Sydney Research Networks Scheme (SYRENS). The SSJN aims to foster new ways of creating knowledge for social change, by fostering a broad community of social justice researchers within and beyond the University. The network will bring together University researchers working on social justice from a variety of disciplinary perspectives and will foster collaboration with a wide range of organizations in civil society, government and business. The SSJN will build on the existing broad experience in the field of social justice of the University of Sydney researchers. It aspires to be a collaborative research hub that poses challenging questions, generates participatory discussions and articulates public concerns about social justice.
The Sydney Social Justice Network together with Sydney Ideas co-presented a talk by Professor Armando Barreintos from the University of Manchester on the 13th of March, 2014. Professor Barreintos is the Research Director at the Brooks World Poverty Institute (BWPI) and comes with a rich background on theoretical and empirical studies of poverty alleviation.
