Julian Agyeman
associate professor, urban and environmental policy and planning

Current Research: "I'm investigating the nexus between environmental justice and sustainable development movements, based on the conviction that permanent social and environmental policy change requires the vision of sustainable development and the awareness of justice, including a more equal distribution of resources and wealth."

Most Recent Book: "Sustainable Communities and the Challenge of Environmental Justice puts forward the idea that social justice and environmental protection can be achieved through the concept of 'just sustainability'; a middle ground, or bridging paradigm between the stewardship-focus of environmental sustainability, and the anti-racist and anti-classist focus of the environmental justice movement."

Why Tufts: "I'm part of a community where students are of such high quality. I am really impressed with their commitment to wanting to change the world. My students help with my research and challenge me constantly."
