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 SSJN provides a space for social justice researchers and practitioners to connect with each other; discuss mutual concerns, and share experiences to explore and deepen the interface between theory and practice. By pooling a broad range of skills, expertise and bodies of knowledge the SSJN will enable a multifaceted institutional, political, social, cultural and philosophical exploration of social justice issues.
The network is inclusive and evolving, and new participants are welcome. If you would like to get involved please contact us.
