Researching Equality and Social Justice

Researching Equality and Social Justice
A Guide For Education Students

June 2023 | 216 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
In order to successfully complete a research project on social issues, as part of your education or social science degree, you will need a confident understanding of often challenging and nuanced topics.

This book provides an overview of how to approach researching issues relating to key social justice issues including: race, sex and gender, disability and mental health. It will help you to understand important concepts, how to avoid hidden biases and how to use appropriate terminology in each area.

It combines this thematic approach with accessible guidance on the research process, from initial design and formulating your research question, through to data collection and analysis.
