Diversity and Social Justice in Education

Educating for diversity and social justice is a key public goal of education. This research theme takes a critical and transformative approach to this goal that recognises the complex and growing economic, cultural, digital, spatial and political inequalities within and beyond Australia. Our research provides insight into the structures and practices that both undermine and enable educating for diversity towards a more inclusive and just citizenry. We focus on how injustices are compounded for groups marginalised on the basis of Indigeneity, gender, sexuality, disability, religion, race, age, geography and ethnicity and how these are transformed by, for example, inclusive policy, education leadership, teaching and learning and social relations. We seek to inform policy and practice within all spheres and levels of education to create a more equitable and inclusive world.
