Introducing a special issue on what is to be done: Eve Tuck, K. Wayne Yang, ‘What Justice Wants’, Critical Ethnic Studies, 2, 2, 2016, pp. 1-15
Abstract: In this introduction, coeditors Eve Tuck and K. Wayne Yang discuss critically productive tensions that serve as the foundation for this issue’s theme of “what justice wants.” Tuck and Yang consider how justice operates as a catalytic concept in conversations like critical ethnic studies and among activists and organizers. The article addresses the limits and possibilities for justice, as a redress discourse, as a form of action, and through the State. Highlighting the varying and sometimes contradictory meanings of justice, the authors then consider the “elsewheres” beyond justice. This introduction also provides short descriptions of the articles that make up this issue and approach their own perspectives on what justice wants.
