Social Justice and Inequality

This area encompasses the study of power relations, inequality, resistance and demands for social justice.

Among the subjects addressed are gender, ethnicity and class inequality, human rights, democracy and multiculturalism, international development, cross-cultural conflict and dispute settlement and the sociology of law, deviance, and criminal justice.

Many of us work in highly politicized social fields, with local and transnational social movements, indigenous rights, and alternative models of justice.
