Pursuing justice is daunting. It plays out in a variety of contexts -- like the environment, employment, the criminal justice system -- and raises tough issues like racism, gender discrimination and poverty. But ultimately the aim of studying justice is to achieve it.

This book is about justice in Canada: its definition, its boundaries, its contradictions and its nuances. It is also about the mechanisms and practices that enable the pursuit of justice. It problematizes the notion of justice while defining and pursuing the illusive notion of justice in Canadian society.

This second edition features updated content from the popular first edition as well as new content about social justice and racism, the experiences of racialized persons with police, settler colonialism and issues of justice for gender and sexual minorities -- all from a Canadian perspective. Additionally, each chapter contains objectives of the chapter, case studies and discussion questions.
