“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”
Martin Luther King
Inspired by this thought, the Justice Everywhere blog explores issues of justice and ethics in all areas of public, political, social, economic, and personal life. It believes that moral issues arise, essentially, ‘everywhere’ and that reasonable, constructive debate can help clarify the nature and dimensions of such issues and how to address the problems they present. Accordingly, it provides a public forum for discussion of what justice, morality, and ethics ask of us and for encouraging better application of these principles in social policy, public life, and personal action.
Justice Everywhere posts about any aspect of ethical life and public policy arising in either the domestic or global domain, considered from any theoretical perspective. Posts are designed to be succinct and accessible to a broad audience. They consider topics presently under debate in current political and social affairs, either ‘hot topics’ or ongoing large-scale questions, and focus on exploring the central moral threads in these issues, seeking to delineate the crucial fault-lines of debate, and to outline ideas on the direction policy or action should move.
Justice Everywhere is a cooperative of political theorists and philosophers with a diverse array of interests. More information is available on our authorship page, including a list of our “house authors” and information about our ongoing collaboration with the Journal of Applied Philosophy.
The blog is run by a team of “co-sustainers”. Currently these are:
- Fay Niker: general editor
- Aveek Bhattacharya: oversees special series, such as the Beyond The Ivory Tower interview series
- Andrew Walton: oversees the collaboration with the Journal of Applied Philosophy
We welcome contact from anyone interested in contributing the blog and or in offering a one-off post. You can reach us at:
Justice Everywhere fosters an inviting atmosphere where people with different opinions can participate to open and constructive discussions. We encourage readers to join the discussion and comment on posts. We do ask, however, that all comments abide by the ‘charitable reading’ principle in exploring and challenging blog posts, interpreting posts in their most favourable light and being polite in addressing the author and other commenters. In addition, we require you to adhere to the common-sense rules of politeness. Comments should not contain defamatory language, criticisms directed at authors (rather than their arguments), threats to a person, or links to abusive websites.
