World Day of Social Justice was initiated by the General Assembly of the United Nations in 2007 to encourage support for international efforts in poverty eradication, the promotion of full employment, gender equity and justice for all.
Placing social justice at the centre of international, national and regional policy agendas is crucial to achieving this goal. However, persistent injustices, widespread labor insecurity, high levels of inequality, and unraveling social contracts exacerbated by global conflicts and crises threaten progress. Reinforcing institutions and policies that truly advance social justice is seen as an urgent priority.
Students and teachers are encouraged to think about social justice issues and consider the plight of millions of people being deprived of equity, access and participation in a fair society because of gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture or disability.
