The Arab Spring and other social movements such as the indignados in Spain or Occupy Wall Street, brought millions of people out onto the streets to address the issue of growing inequalities worldwide and to demand immediate political action for social justice. Yet despite this clear, strong message, the global trend is still heading towards further inequality. Social and economic development, accompanied by an equal distribution of knowledge, income and power, are essential to build a just and equal society and assure an inclusive democratic transition.
The Cooperation Network "Social Justice in the Middle East and North Africa" aims to build alliances between civil society organisations, think tanks, social movements, progressive political forces and independent trade unions to promote social justice for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
