The Significance of Context in the Enactment of Social Justice

Pamela S. Angelle, Deirdre Torrance

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The ways in which the external influences of context, situated in policy and political discourse, along with the issues brought to bear by the internal and external school community and stakeholder demographics are key in shaping the practice of social justice in schools (Angelle et al. 2015, 2016; Torrance and Forde 2017a). Research that explores social justice leadership simultaneously, rather than contrasted against it, as well as investigations that examine the role of context in relation to leadership for social justice is placed on an international scale and highlighted here.
