Concerns about social justice issues in mathematics education have a long history stemming from research on gender to issues related to ethnicity and social class. However, almost non-existent in this literature is a theoretical engagement with the concept of social justice itself. This paper further develops a model of social justice elaborated in previous presentations based on writings of feminist theoreticians. It posits social justice as a multidimensional and transcategorical construct. Further, it applies the model to a discussion of social justice in international collaborations in the discipline.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
