2016 Global Social Justice Summer Research Symposium

In collaboration with the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs; the School of Foreign Service Dean's Office; the Georgetown Office of Fellowships, Awards & Resources; and the Georgetown Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program, the Center for Social Justice hosts an annual symposium to feature summer social justice-based research from undergraduate fellows and recent alumni.
The 2016 symposium featured student research panels and presentations from leading scholars. Jocelyne R. Smith Lee led a lunch session examining the implications for social justice driven policies and practices that promote the health and well-being of black boys and men. Her later workshop highlighted the training necessary for conducting ethical and empowering research within this demographic. Student presenters shared their research from the Education and Social Justice Project, part of the Doyle Engaging Difference ProgramA full schedule of the symposium can be found below.
