Global Justice Hub

The “Global Justice Hub” has the goal of establishing an institutional forum to bring together and promote collaboration amongst students, faculty, alumni, staff, and community members engaged or interested in global justice work. Thus far, the hub has fostered two major initiatives: the development of a new Global Justice inquiry course (ARTSSCI 3GJ3), and the creation of the “McMaster Global Justice Collaboratory.”

The Global Justice Collaboratory

The Global Justice Collaboratory seeks to bring together like-minded individuals from the campus and the community to address pressing global justice issues through the development of scholarly publications and/or plans for advocacy within the community. Structured and supported by the Global Justice Hub Advisory Committee, the initiative also offers participants the opportunity to interact with one another and share their developing work.

    The term “collaboratory” describes a system or initiative that brings together a range of people to work on a topic of shared interest—in this case, global justice.
  2. Who can participate?
    Anyone interested in issues of global justice, including McMaster faculty, staff, students, alumni and community members, is welcome to participate in this collaboratory.
