Abstract

While discussions of social justice have become more prominent in the general career literature in recent years, little attention has been given to where the topic 'fits' within career education and, more specifically, how it affects career advisers in schools. Drawing on the findings emerging from research in New Zealand, this paper examines career education from a social justice perspective, and considers whether it should be regarded as a site of oppression and domination.
