Rigid social hierarchies present in Indian society have impacted the country’s commitment to equality and social justice. Social justice is crucial for ending poverty and essential for fostering common goals and creating a shared sense of belonging and prosperity. By ensuring social justice, the poor get empowered and the marginalised can take advantage of opportunities. The principle of social justice ensures that everyone, regardless of community, caste, class, status or gender, has a voice in the decision-making process which affect their lives. Social justice also ensures that everyone enjoys equal access to basic amenities and to political, social, economic and physical spaces. An inequitable status excludes people from a range of processes and opportunities. CSD follows its commitment to social justice by upholding principles of equity and by supporting inclusive participation through constructing strategies for advocacy that promote the rights, interests and needs of the disempowered.
