ILO Director-General – Why we need greater social justice20 February 2023
A toxic combination of mutually-reinforcing crises – inflation, debt, food and fuel price rises, geopolitical tensions and conflict, climate change – are threatening to increase poverty, inequality and discrimination worldwide. They are also fuelling social tensions. Yet, while policymakers focus on the need for progress on economic and environmental issues, less attention is being paid to the third pillar necessary for recovery – social progress.
On World Day of Social Justice, the ILO’s Director-General, Gilbert F Houngbo, explains why a greater emphasis on social justice is essential for a sustainable recovery, and why we need a Global Coalition for Social Justice to ensure that the necessary measures and actions are integrated throughout all levels of policy-making.
