Justice, democracy and wealth

Can citizens still relate to each other as equals in a democracy in the face of strong injustices?

Justice in a democratic society requires that people treat each other as free and equal citizens. Yet the viability of this ideal is endangered by pervasive structures of domination and injustice along lines of class, gender, and race. These structures extend from the operation of national bureaucracies to corporate control over global markets. Researchers working within this theme aim to rethink justice and democracy against the backdrop of sharp asymmetries of political, economic and cultural forms of power.

An overview of researchers, projects, key publications and examples of public engagement will follow soon.
