Social justice is about the distribution of society's benefits and burdens, looking at individual fairness and the ways in which social processes and institutions work to produce fair outcomes. Social justice concerns the worth and rights of all citizens in all countries; addressing issues of fairness and inclusion, poverty and inequality, power and responsibility between the individual and the state.
