What is the difference between Social Justice & Human rights?

The differences between  Social Justice & Human Rights is a difficult subject therefore please follow the links and come back to this page. The overall objective is to examine all of the different elements to examine if a society exists in which each individual matters, their rights are recognized and protected, and decisions are made in ways that are fair and honest.

This will require an understanding of each term and to talk about them and to examine if they are part of Human Rights or Social Justice or both so that we can see where changes need to be made. Injustice and how some  are manipulated by vested interests. The terms are

  • Social Justice
  • Equal right
  • Unequal rights
  • Social Injustice
  • Myths and Misconceptions
  • Human Rights
  • Implementation Gap
  • Fairness
  • Homophobia
  • Gender Neutralizing
  • Discrimination
  • Age
  • Employment

 

 

We need your input #Law Subject #ImplimentationGap between written law and its practice by legal players holding views about sexual assault characterised by myths and misconceptions. This gap is behind #Injustice everywhere.

SJ: This is an underlying principle for peaceful and prosperous coexistence within and among nations. The principles are used when we promote gender equality or the rights of indigenous peoples and migrants. It also includes the removal of barriers that people face because of gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture or disability. SJ is the fair and just relation between the individual and society. It includes items covering the distribution of wealth, opportunities for people and social privileges. The concept of SJ seems to be a balance between the need to do your part (your responsibility) within society in order to receive anything from society (your rights).

And

Human Rights: 

FOR HUMAN RIGHTS IN YOUR COUNTRY

Our organisation also relies on a simple test. Is it fair?

  • To help the question we also add:
  • Injustice: Lack of fairness or justice.
  • Social Injustice: A situation where some unfair practices are being carried out in society. Whatever is unjust is usually against the law although it might not be against moral practices. It occurs when equals are treated in an unequal way and all of the unequals are treated equally. (See example below – employment)

We leave you to look at both Social Justice and Human Rights as they both contains areas of interest.

We approach the subject slightly differently  by focusing on Social Injustice

Although many social injustices have been improved there are still many examples where people face situations for which there are no easy solutions or for them, or even have anyone listen to their problem is difficult to impossible

Examples relevant to our work

  • Discrimination:
    • this term covers a variety of social inequalities within culture, politics, religion, ethnicity, skin colour, gender; not conforming to social expectations (myths and misconception, height, weight), language,
  • Homophobia:
    • Injustice towards the sexual minority where hatred is shown towards bisexuals, transgender etc.
  • Age:
    • When people or a certain group of people are discriminate against because of their age. In institutional service it includes the withholding of rights or treating them in a prejudicial manner.
  • Employment:
    • Regardless of ability or qualifications females are paid less than males doing the exact same work. Inability to communicate in a preferred language, disability when being disabled isn’t a factor of the work required.
  • Criminal:
    • Despite laws against sexual assault and abuse of children or family violence and the fact that most victims can identify the perpetrator prosecution of such crimes have the lowest success rate? Myths, misconceptions and or victim blaming and unusually high time delays cause a 98% failure rate leading to victims not reporting any incident
  • Deliberate manipulation of a law, treaty or agreement

HOW DO WE AS AN ORGANISATION DO TO IMPROVE SOCIETY AND INDIVIDUAL LIVES

Our multi-function programs are working towards including everything in our 21st Century Family Survival Guide. We demonstrate that everything that society does is connected to Human Rights and Social Justice or lack thereof. We provide facts on Internet security because revelation of personal details can provide information that may used by paedophiles and other criminal predators

Each area of our Guide has an underlying theory of change which helps us connect our day to day work within our overall organisational vision. We measure our success by identifying and monitoring social trends and criminal activity associated with key activity or outcomes.

By setting measures to monitor our progress, we are better able to understand how our programs work, where improvements can be made and to report on outcomes.  It also ensures that we are clear about who is responsible for what and how we will know when we have achieved these things.

The questions which are central to our evaluation framework are:

  • What is the change we want to see?
  • How will that change happen?
  • What is our unique contribution to bringing this change about?
  • How will we know if we have done this?
  • Ultimately, the measure of our success will be a fairer and more just society, demonstrated by access to justice for people experiencing disadvantage.

How successful are we?

Due to the absolute privacy extended to those who seek our help we are unable and unwilling to provide any statistics. Information given to us stays with us however when we provide information on this website and in our education programs you can be sure that we provide the latest and most relevant solutions.

We provide information and feel rewarded when governments change laws and adopt policies that were being used by us over many years
