The Centre for Studies in Social Justice serves as a forum to provide information and research exchanges related to a wide range of social justice issues - health, sexuality, racism, literacy, poverty, and gender inequalities, as well as the legal, environmental, and cultural challenges of restructuring, the global economy, and international development.
Following two years of planning by a steering committee, headed by the Deans of Arts and Social Sciences and Law, the Centre for Studies in Social Justice came into existence on July 1, 2002. In so doing "social justice" joined "automotive education and research" and "environmental research" as one of three "pinnacle programme areas" in which the University of Windsor sought to develop an international reputation for excellence. The Centre is committed to interdisciplinarity in research and teaching, and to advocacy.
The Centre for Studies in Social Justice provides a place for researchers from the University of Windsor and other universities, centres and institutes, policy makers and community members to: address the causes and impact of widespread social and economic changes; research the elements that promote or impede social justice; access resources, training, and knowledge; stimulate discussion and debate on social justice issues; and to formulate recommendations on policies or strategies that could diminish existing injustices.
