Overview

In a supposedly 'global age', the late Dr Jennifer Crawford has brought together a range of disciplines in her creation of a unified, sensitive 'way of knowing' for the global era. Drawing upon her academic and lived experience in philosophy, environmental science, social work and feminism, together with a deep spiritual commitment, Jennifer Crawford has deftly woven together complex ideas in her reconceptualisation of global justice. Unlike similar discussions of the inequities of globalization, however, Jennifer Crawford's work resonates with wisdom, optimism and ideas for an alternative global ethic.
