Abstract

‘Design Justice - Community-led Practices to Build the Worlds We Need’ is an essential read for those involved with social design and social justice. Defining design justice as “an exploration of how design might be led by marginalized communities, dismantle structural inequality, and advance collective liberation and ecological survival”, Constanza-Chock positions it as a function of power in design processes, hypothesizing that design justice is an end result of who has power while researching and while designing, the decisions they make and how these decisions affect marginalised groups.
