The Grand Challenge of Justice & Equality fosters cross-disciplinary research from UCL, examining the barriers that people face to justice and how societal structures perpetuate and sustain inequalities.

UCL Grand Challenge of Justice & Equality Stats


Since its launch in 2016, Justice & Equality’s work has considered radical solutions to tackle inequalities and change the status quo, producing new research and collaborations on subjects including access to education, torture, asylum and more.

Justice & Equality also examines inequality, exclusion and displacement, cultural heritage and diversity and barriers to democratic participation. The programme encompasses academics from across the university and supports researchers to make new and innovative collaborations across a range of disciplines. At the same time, the programme’s purpose is to see knowledge generated by research and scholarship at UCL achieve real-world influence.

It has awarded over £163,000 in funding to cross-disciplinary teams, generating over £170,000 in further funding.

  • 42 projects funded
  • 92 researchers involved
  • ~£0.2m further funding generated
