About

The Urban Justice Lab creates space for discussions, debate and research, teaching and outreach for university academics who study or operate on ‘the city’. The need for such a platform arises from the inter- and multidisciplinary character of cities’ research and knowledge as much as from the scattering of the relevant academics throughout the university’s diverse schools. The Lab’s overall ambition is not merely to support the production of knowledge, but also the enhancement of justice on a local and urban scale which is meaningful to citizens.

The Urban Justice Lab welcomes ad hoc collaborations that are not necessarily formulated as networks or centres. It allows the interrogation of single issues, events with particular cities, or the search for solutions to specific problems. Related research projects examine urban theory and government policies, and how urban societies cope with global challenges, such as environment, health or conflict.
