20 February 2023 worldwide
World Day of Social Justice 2023

On 26 November 2007, the UN General Assembly (UNGA) designated 20 February as World Day of Social Justice. World Day of Social Justice 2023 will focus on the recommendations of Our Common Agenda to strengthen global solidarity and to rebuild trust in government.

On the occasion of World Day of Social Justice 2023, the Permanent Mission of Kyrgyzstan to the UN and the International Labour Organization (ILO), in partnership with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), and the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA), are convening a commemorative meeting on the theme, ‘Overcoming Barriers and Unleashing Opportunities for Social Justice’. 

The 2023 celebration aims to provide an opportunity to foster dialogue among Member States, youth, social partners, civil society, UN organizations, and other stakeholders on actions needed to strengthen the social contract that has been fractured by rising inequalities, conflicts, and weakened institutions that are meant to protect the rights of workers.
