The Center for Social Justice, in collaboration with the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs, the Walsh School of Foreign Service Dean's Office, the Georgetown Office of Fellowships, Awards & Resources, and the Georgetown Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program hosts an annual symposium to feature summer social justice-based research from undergraduate fellows and recent alumni.

This year's symposium featured student research panels and presentations from leading scholars. Student participants in the Education and Social Justice Project opened the day by sharing their research from three countries: Australia, Mozambique, and Ukraine. Derek Hyra of American University presented his ethnographic investigation of the redevelopment of Washington, D.C.’s Shaw/U Street neighborhood based on research in his newly published book, Race, Class, and Politics in the Cappuccino City (2017) over a lunchtime keynote.
