People protesting in the streets.Social justiceĀ is a concept of fair andĀ justĀ relations between theĀ individualĀ andĀ society. This is measured by the explicit and tacit terms for theĀ distribution of wealth,Ā opportunitiesĀ for personal activity, andĀ social privileges. InĀ WesternĀ as well as in olderĀ Asian cultures, the concept of social justice has often referred to the process of ensuring that individuals fulfill theirĀ societal rolesĀ and receive what was their due from society. In the current globalĀ grassrootsĀ movements for social justice, the emphasis has been on the breaking of barriers forĀ social mobility, the creation ofĀ safety netsĀ andĀ economic justice.

Social justice assigns rights and duties in theĀ institutionsĀ of society, which enables people to receive the basic benefits and burdens of cooperation. The relevant institutions often includeĀ taxation,Ā social insurance,Ā public health,Ā public school,Ā public services,Ā labor lawĀ andĀ regulationĀ ofĀ markets, to ensureĀ fairĀ distribution of wealth, andĀ equal opportunity.

Interpretations that relate justice to aĀ reciprocal relationship to society are mediated by differences in cultural traditions, some of which emphasize the individual responsibility toward society and others the equilibrium between access to power and its responsible use. Hence, social justice is invoked today while reinterpreting historical figures such asĀ BartolomĆ© de las Casas, in philosophical debates about differences among human beings, in efforts for gender, racial andĀ social equality, for advocating justice forĀ migrants, prisoners, theĀ environment, and the physically and developmentallyĀ disabled. ā€•Ā Wikipedia
