UCL Grand Challenges


Grand Challenge of Justice and Equality

The Grand Challenge of Justice & Equality fosters cross disciplinary research from UCL, examining the barriers that people face to just solutions and equality of opportunity.

Since this Grand Challenge was launched in 2016, its work and research has addressed how societal structures limit justice and sustain inequalities, while considering radical solutions to tackle inequalities and change the status quo.

The Grand Challenge of Justice and Equality funds cross-disciplinary work at UCL addressing access to education, health, technology and resources around the world. It also examines inequality, exclusion and displacement, cultural heritage and diversity and barriers to democratic participation. The programme encompasses academics from across UCL and supports UCL researchers to make new and innovative collaborations across a range of disciplines. Find out more about who's involved. At the same time, the programme's purpose is to see knowledge generated by research and scholarship at UCL achieve real-world influence.

Justice & Equality is one of six UCL Grand Challenges - find out more about how the whole programme works.
