Research:

Victoria is currently researching conceptions of social justice through a philosophical inquiry with young people. The focus of this research will serve to explore numerous conceptions of social justice, seeking to empower young people with a sense of agency that is necessary to effectively engage with the world. It is hoped that this can be achieved through democratic dialogue, with young people sharing their beliefs and ideologies concerning social justice, and listening to those of others in order to reach new meanings and understanding of what social justice means to them. This approach to the methodology will provide an opportunity for the participants to stop and think, and engage with a systematic search for meaning, through meaningful questioning and dialogue. Victoria proposes to ‘hybridise’ empirical and philosophical research methodologies through young people’s engagement with philosophical inquiry, central to the concept of social justice.
