Sydney Social Justice Network Research Showcase

17 March 2016

The Sydney Social Justice Network (SSJN) is an initiative hosted by the University of Sydney and funded by the Sydney Research Networks Scheme. SSJN brings partner organisations from civil society, government and business together with University researchers working on social justice from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. The network fosters collaborative research projects and as part of its work has supported the appointment of a number of visiting community justice research fellows in 2015 and 2016. The Sydney School of Education and Social Work has recently funded the appointment of an Indigenous Research Fellow as part of the SSJN program. This showcase provides an avenue for our current visiting research fellows to present the results of their work to a wider audience. Each of our research fellows will talk about their specific project, before responding to questions from the audience.

To find out more about the SSJN go to or follow us on Twitter @ssjnetwork.
