Social Justice Platform (SJP) is an independent Initiative. We are a group of action-oriented academic researchers, from the fields of economics, political science, anthropology, and sociology. We seek to analyze social and economic structures in Egypt in ways that promote social change and support the extraordinary struggles of Egyptian workers, employees, students, farmers, and citizens. We believe in human rights in so far as they mean collective economic and social rights, and believe in the important role citizens should play in policy-making, and in their right to accessing information and participating in governance. We are inspired by an ideal we seek to reach in our work – the ideal of social justice.
