Book Launch: 'Museums, Immigrants and Social Justice'
Dr Sophia Labadi

Sophia Labadi's newly published Museums, Immigrants, and Social Justice (Routledge, 2017) argues that museums can offer a powerful, and often overlooked, arena for both exploring and acting upon the interrelated issues of immigration and social justice. Based on three in-depth European case studies, spanning France, Denmark, and the UK, the research examines programmes developed by leading museums to address cultural, economic, social and political inequalities. Where previous studies on museums and immigration have focused primarily on issuesof cultural inequalities in collection and interpretation, Museums, Immigrants,and Social Justice adopts a more comprehensive focus that extends beyond the exhibition hall to examine the full range of programs developed by museums to address the of cultural, economic, social and political inequalities facing immigrants.
