Global Coalition for Social Justice: Bridging Gaps, Building Alliances

The Permanent Mission of the Kyrgyz Republic to the United Nations and the International Labour Organization in collaboration with the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs are pleased to convene the annual commemorative event on the World Day of Social Justice on 20 February at the United Nations Headquarters. The event will highlight the crucial role of international collaboration and solidarity in addressing social justice within the framework of multilateralism. It will also be a timely opportunity to emphasize the prioritization of social justice at key intergovernmental milestones of the United Nations this year. By focusing on bridging gaps and building alliances in support of the Global Coalition for Social Justice, we can ensure the promise of enabling our societies and economies to function more cohesively and effectively; unlock the productive potential of countries and people; pave the way for sustained reductions in poverty and inequality – prerequisites for inclusive growth; and contribute to peace, stability, and intergenerational solidarity.
