At a time when long-standing economic, social and political arrangements are looking increasingly shaky, as governments cut support to the poorest and bankers continue to rake in huge bonuses, the challenges for social cohesion - and for social justice - already seem overwhelming. But it is not just widening inequality of income and wealth that fragments society, but inequalities of power and participation. As inequalities increase, it becomes harder to empathise with life experiences so different from our own, particularly when fuelled by a sense of injustice. Disengagement is too often the result. In this ambitious, wide-ranging book, the author asks what it takes to create inclusive, cohesive societies. Weaving together themes from the theoretical literatures on social justice, poverty, discrimination and social exclusion, she formulates a vision for social justice as 'inclusive equality' - a novel approach which reveals clear, practical implications for the design and delivery of social policy.
