Justice Studies Association (JSA) is a not-for-profit membership
association established in 1998 to foster progressive writing,
research, practice, and activism in all areas of criminal,
social, and restorative justice.
include scholars from all academic disciplines and fields
of endeavor, activists, and practitioners of justice from
around the globe. They seek through their actions, practices,
writing, research, and everyday life to explore and develop
social arrangements and ways of life that promote justice
without violence and restore people to wholeness through
interpersonal as well as social structural change.
The association sponsors an annual conference during the
last week of May or first week of June for members, friends,
and associates to share their latest work, pose questions
and seek answers to pressing, contemporary issues of justice.
Conference presentations are generally brief so as to maximize
opportunities for discussion and the free exchange of ideas.
Most sessions are plenary in nature in the hopes of fostering
a greater sense of community and solidarity among participants.
The association also takes public stands on current issues
of justice internationally, such as the death penalty, so
as to effect change in the attitudes and behavior of people
as well as in institutional social policy.
