Equity and Justice (EQU)

The EQU Group focuses on the human dimension of selected globally relevant policy challenges, with the aim of delineating and advancing their analysis, management, and governance with special attention paid to the design and application of equity and justice frameworks, both within the group and across IIASA.

The EQU Group aims to contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and other global challenges, both in its own right and as part of broader IIASA initiatives by developing and applying conceptual and analytical frameworks for integrating equity and justice aspects into assessments of societal and environmental challenges. The group has a specific focus on ethical questions in the context of distributive and procedural justice concerns that may arise within the currently living generation, as well as across current and future generations, and explores options to enable transformative policy change towards just societies. EQU works closely with other IIASA research programs and groups to position IIASA research activities in a well-grounded equitable and just systems analysis framework.
