We welcome the news that climate justice will develop as a focus of academic inquiry through GCU’s Masters. JRF has been working on this issue in the UK over the past five years and we feel there is a need to develop evidence base and the application of key principles in policy and practice. GCU’s programme offers the opportunity to develop understanding among a new generation of students on this important agenda.
