Sydney Ideas: why social justice matters

16 November 2012

Why Social Justice Matters

Co-presented with the Sydney Social Justice Network at the University of Sydney

Social justice is a much-discussed concept, but what exactly does it mean and what are today’s most pressing social justice concerns? This forum will begin to ask these tough questions, focusing on what the role of the University of Sydney should or could be in relation to social justice. How do we begin to develop approaches to social justice research that bring together practitioners, policy makers, citizens and academics in new ways to address long-standing issues of inequality and disadvantage? To explore these questions, two civil society activists Jody Broun, Co-Chair of the National Congress of Australia’s First People and Dr Amanda Tattersall, Director, of Sydney Alliance, will join Professor Duncan Ivison, Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and Professor Robert J Tierney, Dean of the Sydney School of Education and Social Work, University of Sydney.

The event will be chaired by leading social justice advocate Dr Meredith Burgmann
