JustCE (LEX) - Toward a Just Circular Economy: led by the University of Exeter, Business School and Law School, and the University of Lund (Sweden). This short research project runs from 1st March to 31st July 2023, funded by the European Network Fund 2022-23. The aim is to explore and empirically investigate the concept of "circular justice" in the literature and policies' narrative, focussing on the "right to repair" (R2R) movement in Europe as the ideal test bed for our understanding of the concept.
