This book is a collection of writings on the theme of social justice, education and identity by researchers who are members of the British Educational Research Association’s (BERA) Special Interest Group (SIG) in Social Justice. The authors seek to theorise the concept of social justice, inquire into its presence or absence in various sites and explore how the education system, through its organisation and practices, is implicated in the realisation of just or unjust social outcomes (Dehli 2002, personal communication). A particular theme is how the identities of individuals and groups are formed and transformed in schools, colleges and universities.
