Toni Griffin re: The Just City

I define urban justice as the factors that contribute to our economic, human health, civic and cultural well-being, as well as the factors that contribute to the environmental and aesthetic health of the built environment.

She goes on to three conditions of urban injustice; concentrated poverty, disinvestment, crime and the architecture of fear, and socio-economic division.

Finally, she offers/defines ten values;

Equity, Choice, Access, Connectivity, Ownership, Diversity, Participation, Inclusion and Belonging, Beauty and Creative innovation

as initial metrics for designing for the just city.
