Justice, Equity & Society

Increasingly, democratic states and institutions are facing a combination of external and internal challenges.

Changes in the manner in which information is communicated have fundamentally altered journalism and the media industry. Trust in public institutions is eroding and participation in traditional forms of democratic engagement is declining. There are systemic issues within the judicial system that result in inequity and injustice. Growing income and social inequality and a rise in populism compound these difficulties.

These challenges and their intersections are taken on by our faculty as we continue to build capacity in the study of democratic institutions with a focus on inclusivity, governance, and engagement.
