The Global Justice Lab studies and works
with justice institutions under stress in Canada, on the
international stage, and worldwide. Many justice systems
struggle to maintain their social license in the face of
demographic shifts, rapid economic development and the
erosion of traditional governance regimes. Some face
competition from other public and private sector players
claiming to offer fairer, more effective or more
cost-efficient solutions to justice-related problems. And
of course stressors such as escalating political demands,
growing perceptions of inequality and changing patterns of
violence present acute challenges to the status quo.
