After the turmoil caused by Covid-19, especially in marginalized communities, and the national reckoning emerging from the killing of George Floyd and countless other victims of police brutality and state violence, we believe now is a critical time for reconsidering and reclaiming the notions of justice. We believe this theme provides opportunities to address diverse questions and issues related to the research, teaching, and activism of our members including: 

  • What would real justice entail, especially now? 
  • What has the global pandemic highlighted for us in regards to justice? 
  • How are people using their voice (voting, protesting, advocating) to effect social change? 
  • Prison and police abolition 

We also welcome presentations on developments in restorative and transformative justice; theoretical and empirical understandings of crime, justice, and the law; rights of the incarcerated and justice-involved people; social inequality across various social institutions.

The Justice Studies Association is committed to inclusiveness. We welcome presentationsfrom teachers, scholars, students, activists, professionals, and community members onjustice, teaching strategies, research findings, personal experiences, and artistic/creativeexpressions.
