Global Social Justice

Task Force Chairs

  • Isabel Ortiz
    Global Social Justice Program Director
    Initiative for Policy Dialogue

The Global Social Justice Program aims to generate debate on the distributional impacts – the winners and losers – of current policies and to provide alternatives based on the rights of all peoples to benefit from economic and social progress. The world’s extreme inequalities should make us question the current development models, which have accrued mostly to the wealthiest. The Program aims to evidence how economic decisions affect all citizens but are often taken without adequately looking at their social impacts, therefore benefitting the better-off and perpetuating inequality patterns. The Global Social Justice Program will present alternatives to maximize the public interest and reduce inequalities, both at the national and global levels.
