Economic Justice

These groups work toward a world in which resources are allocated more fairly, and where as a result each person is ensured a dignified, productive and creative life.

The activities of the groups in this section range from promoting alternative political systems and schools of economic thought, to fighting austerity and other unjust economic structures, to providing support to those currently suffering due to the current system.
