Celebrating World Day of Social Justice

On 26 November 2007, the General Assembly declared that, starting from the sixty-third session of the General Assembly, 20 February will be celebrated annually as the World Day of Social Justice. Proponents argue that promoting decent work and a fair globalization agenda focused on fundamental rights, employment opportunities, social protections, and constructive social dialogue between governments, employers, and workers is key to putting social justice at the core. The Edmund Rice Centre for Justice and Community Education as a centre dedicated to advocacy and social justice stands in solidarity with others on this day recognising the importance of fairness and equitable treatment in work and the global economy.
