Global Justice

The Haas Institute’s Global Justice Program (GJP) focuses on cross-sectoral themes that connect local to global and vice versa. We frame our work in the fundamental inquiry of how to successfully build inclusive, democratic, and culturally diverse societies within a global context. The program extends, develops, and applies the Institute's frameworks of structural marginality and structural inclusion in a global context, taking into account local complexities and knowledge productions.

The program examines and exposes the structures that contribute to the marginalization of communities around the world, while simultaneously envisioning ways of dismantling them and advancing a vision of an inclusive, shared destiny and a sustainable world.  As we carry our work, utilizing the analytical frame of othering and belonging, we intentionally promote mechanisms and tools that can assist in building the power of marginalized groups to influence collective action at local, national, and international levels.
