On this page, we will name and explain 3 elements of Social Justice: Social Justice can be explained as a process to redressing the situation whereby people with fewer choices (the poor and disadvantaged) often suffer most from discrimination (e.g. race, religion, gender, culture, ability, age) and a lack of acknowledgment of their human rights, access to services (e.g. health, educational) and infrastructure (e.g. water, energy, housing).

Social justice requires the empowerment of those sections of the population previously disempowered by the lack of knowledge and skills.

Three elements of Social Justice

  • A duty of the State to distribute certain vital means (such as economic, social, and cultural rights),
  • The protection of human dignity, and 
  • Affirmative actions to promote equal opportunities for everybody.
