A Vision for Social Justice
Distributed for Policy Press at the University of Bristol
At a time of tremendous economic upheaval and fiery political contests, the possibility of viable social cohesion— and social justice—seems dimmer than ever. In this ambitious, wide-ranging book, Sally Witcher asks what it takes to create a better-functioning society. Weaving together literature on poverty, discrimination, and social exclusion, she formulates a vision for social justice as “inclusive equality,” a novel approach that reveals clear, practical ways to design and deliver social policy. Making complex material accessible, she uncovers just what social justice means and how we can achieve it.
