Building a Research and Advocacy Agenda on Issues of Economic Justice

Building a Research and Advocacy Agenda on Issues of Economic Justice In this article we call for a research agenda focused on classism and poverty and for advocacy of social justice. Examples of recent efforts toward such an agenda are discussed, including the American Psychological Association's adoption of its “Resolution on Poverty and Socioeconomic Status.” In response to the resolution's call for more research on classist attitudes and discrimination against the poor, we outline several directions for future research. Recommendations for how psychological research can be used to advocate for economic justice are offered. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Analyses of Social Issues & Public Policy Wiley

Abstract

In this article we call for a research agenda focused on classism and poverty and for advocacy of social justice. Examples of recent efforts toward such an agenda are discussed, including the American Psychological Association's adoption of its “Resolution on Poverty and Socioeconomic Status.” In response to the resolution's call for more research on classist attitudes and discrimination against the poor, we outline several directions for future research. Recommendations for how psychological research can be used to advocate for economic justice are offered.
