About ISJ

The Institute for Social Justice at York St John University was launched in July 2020.

It draws on our history of work and research that identifies, exposes, and addresses systemic and interpersonal inequalities, injustices, and power relationships across society. It makes clear our ambition to enhance this work and its impact in the future, to help tackle some of the most significant challenges facing society today.

The Institutes supports collaborative research and practice that draws on the range of academic expertise across our university and our partnerships with other universities and organisations. Through this activity we seek to facilitate research, projects and partnerships that help us to pursue and promote a fairer society.

At its core the Institute seeks to work with people, with partners, with communities, with participants, in a manner that sees action, implementation and change as vital parts of its mission.
