Global Justice

Purpose: 
  • To highlight ways in which communities around the world can and have responded to conditions of violence, displacement and marginalization; 
  • To support community efforts to engage in regenerative, community-building activities and break new ground in their struggles; 
  • To connect insights that emerge from work in communities touched by violence in Chicago with global learning that emerges from community struggles abroad; 
  • To share information about our own engaged research with the larger DePaul community; 
  • To encourage additional scholarship and creative activities addressing these kinds of 
    issues at DePaul; 
  • To build a network of faculty, staff and students at DePaul with whom to collaborate on engaged research initiatives.

VdPP Coordinator: Rose Spalding (LAS, Political Sciences)

Projects: This group plans to organize a public panel discussion in late January 2017 in which available SVdPP members will present an overview of their engaged research and invite comments and suggestions from the participants.​
