Justice is a core element of welfare and peacebuilding. It is one of the essential human values and a precondition for equality, equity, fairness, and respect for others’ rights. All stakeholders pursuing socio-economic development must embrace the concept of justice, and justice and respect for human rights must be integral to all systems created by the socio-economic development process.
