The Centre highlights complex social issues, informs opinion and advocates for governmental policy change to create a fair and equitable society for all.

More about us

What we do

Economic Justice

Economic Justice

Economic justice is perhaps the fulcrum around which all social justice debates in contemporary society rotate. In our political discourse, every question of human flourishing seems to be reduced to bottom-line thinking.

Environmental Justice

Environmental Justice

Care of creation or protection of the environment emerged as a key element of social justice in recent decades. The science of ecology has described the intricate web of relationships in which people play an active part for good and bad.

Housing Crisis

Housing Crisis

The right to a safe and secure place to live is one of the most basic human rights, it is fundamental to enable people to live a dignified life. Without the security provided by having somewhere to live, physical and mental health is at risk.

Penal Policy

Penal Policy

People in prison are amongst the most marginalised and vulnerable in our society. The majority have left school early, experience literacy and learning difficulties and have a history of unemployment.
