Professor Dennis Beach’s article was rewarded for showing potential for challenging and/or changing the nature of discourse.

We are delighted to announce that JustEd team leader Dennis Beach (University of Gothenburg) just received an award for his article ‘Whose justice is this! Capitalism, class and education justice and inclusion in the Nordic countries: race, space and class history’.
