COVID-19 has cast a dark light on the global gap in social justice. It has evidenced inequalities and exclusion and hit the most vulnerable among us hardest. Digital technologies have been powerful instruments of resilience, but only for some of us. To bridge that gap, we must work together.
In the framework of the UN 59th Commission for Social Development (CSocD), Club de Madrid and Frederich-Ebert Stiftung organise this Live Session to share with the global community the policy recommendations of the Working Group on Social Justice and Inclusion resulting from our 2020 Policy Dialogue ‘Multilateralism that Delivers’.
At a time in which the COVID-19 health and economic crisis is disproportionately affecting the most vulnerable communities, the UN institutions, Member States and civil society must all cooperate to tackle the widening inequalities brought about by the pandemic. In a push for more multilateral solutions on social justice and inclusion, Club de Madrid and Friedrich-Ebert Stiftung will echo the Working Group’s call for a new World Summit on Social Development.
