This session aims to have a multi-faceted discussion on the spatial dimension of social injustice. We invite papers from a wide range of disciplines that engage in exploring social injustice from a spatial perspective.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
1. Spatial accessibility inequality
2. Mobility disparity
3. Mobility-induced social inequality
4. Spatial challenges for improving social justice
If you are interested in participating in our session, please send your program identification number (PIN) to Dong Liu (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please include “Abstract for Spatializing Social Injustice” in the subject of your emails.
Social injustice has long been and is still a major challenge for achieving social sustainability in both developed and developing countries. Among the many determinants of social injustice, the spatial dimension plays a major role. The social injustice induced by spatial inequalities such as social resource (e.g., employment, healthcare, food and green space) access inequity, inter-mode (e.g., between drivers and transit riders)/intra-mode (e.g., among different transit riders) mobility disparity has been impeding the efforts for reducing socioeconomic inequality. This session seeks to build a platform for exploring social justice from multiple spatial perspectives and aims to spread the novel and innovative methods of dissecting and addressing social justice spatially.
