Aakanksha Sinha, assistant professor of social work, has written a paper, “Innovating with Social Justice: Anti-oppressive social work design framework,” which has been published in the International Journal of Design for Social Change, Sustainable Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Sinha’s paper, as the abstract reads, in part, “introduces Anti-Oppressive Social Work Design (AOSWD) framework, which integrates the principles of anti-oppressive social work practice and a design method, Human-Centred Design (HCD). It explains how social workers can use AOSWD to develop collaborative power through empathy-building, co-creation and integrated feedback.”
