Centre for the Study of Poverty and Social Justice

The Centre provides integrative perspectives on research impact relating to harm, poverty and inequality, social exclusion, migration, social justice, and socio-legal studies. We are collectively dedicated to advancing critical scholarship, implementing rigorous and innovative methodologies, researching and evidencing injustice, actively influencing policy agendas, and informing positive social action.
