The Centre for the Study of Social and Global Justice (CSSGJ) is an independent research centre created to provide a focus for critically oriented education, teaching, and activism, in relation to the most fundamental question facing us as citizens of the world: how should we live? In other words, CSSGJ was created as a space for critical reflection, education, and research in many different facets of social and global justice.
The CSSGJ is excited about the prospects of reaching a larger audience by exploiting the opportunities offered by the internet and being able to invite speakers from all around the world, without the financial constraints of having to pay for transport costs and hotels.
We will hold regular online events available to all, including speakers from various countries and continents – all focused on promoting social and global justice and peace through education.
Consonant with its commitment to social justice, CSSGJ ensures a great variety of speakers from different ethnic and gender backgrounds, as well as countries.
We hope to develop a space where those interested in progressive education and matters of social and global justice and peace can congregate online and overcome the barriers of physical distance between us.
