Short Biography

Dr. Lia Levin is a Senior Lecturer at the School of Social Work. Her work deals mainly with the theorization, conceptualization, research, and application of social justice, in itself and with specific emphasis on its interlockings with epistemic justice and eco-social justice. She is one of the world’s leading scholars today on the topics of epistemic justice and co-production in social work. To date, Dr. Levin has published several articles and book chapters on social justice, social policy, and social work, as well as media columns and other reports. She co-edited the book “Leshomra – Sustainable and Ecological Communities in Israel”, and is currently serving as Associate Editor of the International Journal of Social Welfare. Dr. Levin co-guest edited the groundbreaking special issue of the British Journal of Social Work on the voice and influence of people with lived experience, and is a member of the international research board for the Swedish UserInvolve project, as well as of the Israeli Council for Social Work.


Dr. Levin is the Chair of the School of Social Work’s Unit for Continuing Education and Training, and leads the School’s Policy Practice Clinic. She is highly committed to bridging gaps between academia, communities, professionals, civil society, and policymakers, and is engaged in several processes toward this end.
