Bounded Justice: A Critical Appraisal of DEI

Our annual Fall Semester Diversity, Equity and Inclusion event will feature Health Management and Policy Assistant Professor Melissa Creary presenting on "bounded justice," including a conversation with Dean DuBois Bowman and DEI team leadership. About Bounded Justice: Programs, policies, and technologies — particularly those concerned with health equity — are often designed with justice envisioned as the end goal. These policies or interventions, however, frequently fail to recognize how the beneficiaries have historically embodied the cumulative effects of marginalization, which undermines the effectiveness of the intended justice. These well-meaning attempts at justice are bounded by greater socio-historical constraints. Bounded justice suggests that it is impossible to attend to fairness, entitlement, and equity when the basic social and physical infrastructures underlying them have been eroded by racism and other historically entrenched isms.
