Social Justice Leadership Group

Aims:

The project is guided by two over-arching questions.  At this stage, these remain tentative, but can be expressed as:

  • What is ‘social justice leadership’, and what does it look like when we see it?
  • How can an international and comparative methodology enhance our understanding of what social justice leadership means in different national contexts?

Within the parameters of these questions a set of four provisional research questions have been formulated:

1)    How do social justice leaders make sense of ‘social justice’?

2)    What do social justice leaders do?

3)    What factors help and hinder the work of social justice leaders?

4)    How did social justice leaders learn to become social justice leaders?
