Il diritto di cambiareThe right to changeO direito de mudar

Cover of the ActionAid's book

On the occasion of the United Nations’ World Day of Social Justice, ActionAid International Italy launched a new book: Il diritto di cambiare. Le sfide della giustizia sociale in Italia e nel mondo [The right to change. The challenges of the social justice in Italy and in the world] (ed. Infinito).

“Social justice – as we read on the back cover – is the opportunity for everyone to be included in her/his own society, to participate to the decision making that affect him/her, and to be granted a sufficient level of security, of education and of access to information”.

But why “the right to change”? In order to mainstream social justice, a deep change is needed; and the willingness of a person and of a community «to engage him/herself is the first requirement for those who pursue a change» (p. 10).

The book points out some cases of promotion of the social justice, in the Southern as in the Northern part of the world, organised in three main areas: food right, women rights and citizen participation.

The book resulted from a joint work within the organisation. I contributed with the research for the case related to food right in Italy.
