World Day of Social Justice is observed on 20th February every year.
Social justice is the view that everyone deserves equal economic, political and social rights and
opportunities. The theme of World Day of Social Justice -2021 is “A Call for Social Justice in the
Digital Economy”. The digital economy is transforming the world of work. Over the past decade,
expansion in broadband connectivity, cloud computing, and data have led to the proliferation of
digital platforms, which have penetrated several sectors of the economy and societies. Since
early 2020, the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic have led to remote working
arrangements and allowed for the continuation of many business activities, further reinforcing
the growth and impact of the digital economy.
The United Nations’ (UN) World Day of Social Justice is annually observed to encourage people
to look at how social justice affects poverty eradication. It also focuses on the goal of achieving
full employment and support for social integration.
On 26 November 2007, the UN General Assembly declared that, starting from the 63rd session
of the Assembly, 20 February will be celebrated annually as the World Day of Social Justice.
