Although Brij Mohan has an outstanding reputation as a scholar and advocate of global social justice, his distinctive contribution, spanning several fields, has been neglected by Western European social policy analysis (WESPA). This is surprising given that many of the themes that are expressed in his work are highly relevant to this tradition. This article teases out this relevance in two ways. First, it summarises what should arguably be regarded as the three foundational assumptions of WESPA, highlighting their congruence with some of the central themes of Mohan's work. Western European social policy scholars can expect to feel very comfortable with his normative standpoint, as well as his analysis of the dynamics of injustice. Second, we examine in greater depth Mohan's contribution regarding two specific issues, diversity and freedom. Our analysis suggests that Mohan's substantial and varied corpus should be accorded the recognition within WESPA that it so richly deserves.
