Centre for Peace and Social Justice

TheCentre for Peace and Social Justice(CPSJ) is an interdisciplinary community of scholars from law and justice, cultural studies, politics and policy, Indigenous studies, education, social sciences, creative arts and media. The CPSJ aims to conduct engaged scholarship with the community-at-large and welcomes collaborative endeavours.

The CPSJfocuses on markers of difference that potentially contribute to the inclusion or exclusion in full citizenship. Markers include gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, class, age, family status, material well-being, religion and identity. Members at the Centre are committed to strengthening core values of diversity including acceptance, mutual respect and recognition.

We particularly focus on community-engaged scholarship and studies in:

  • Peace studies
  • Conflict dissolution and alternative dispute resolution
  • Human rights theory and practice
  • Identity in terms of race, disability, sexuality, gender and age
  • Cultural diversity and transformative pedagogy
  • Engaged citizenship and belonging
  • Ethical interventions and social justice
  • Representation and the media
  • Power relations in diverse contexts
  • Restorative justice
  • Comparative and international law, criminology and victimology
  • Exclusion from and inclusion in full legal, political and cultural rights
  • Space, place and belonging

The Centre for Peace and Social Justice is well-positioned with its membership to provide a crucial space for community engagement and scholarship that ameliorates the human condition throughprincipled support for diversity and difference.
