From the Introduction by the Guest Editors:

This compilation of selected articles presents a collection of theories and interventions written up in response to the global challenge of making education more relevant and more just for those who receive it in varied contexts. It offers critical insights on the complexity associated with thinking about and implementing socially just pedagogies, and on the ways in which teachers are thinking about ameliorating the complexity albeit in just one area, i.e. pedagogy, teaching, and learning.

The social justice through transformation discussion as taken up in this special issue aims at considering how pedagogy can be used as an act of change that fundamentally reshapes how students and teachers engage and interact with society. It is fundamentally about returning higher education to its social justice roots, where the teaching, learning, and research environment orient students and their teachers towards a path of societal betterment through promoting equal and just practices.
