AWWK-Kurs Nr. 636: Social Inequality: Arab Phenomenon or Neoliberalism?

Friday, 19 January 2018, 10:00-18:00
Geschäftsstelle der AWWK, Seminarraum 5.26
Rüppurrer Str. 1a, Haus B, 5. OG

The uprising in the Arab region was not only a revolt against dictatorship,
but also against inequality, unemployment, poverty and corruption.
Therefore, ‚social justice’ was one of the most widely used
slogans by protesters to express the drastic deterioration of their socioeconomic
situation.
Social injustice is not a feature of developing countries or an outcome
of corruption, as the international financial institutions (IMF
and WB) tend to argue. It is rather induced by the neoliberal economic
policies, which lack of developmental, social and environmental
dimensions, and caused a series of economic deficiencies, such as
unemployment, declining local production and informal economy.
Social injustice refers not only to income and wealth disparity between
women and men or between rural and urban populations,
but also to unequal access to resources, job opportunities, education
and health care. Radicalization of society and religious- and ethnicalbased
extremism are common outcomes of social injustice.
Against this background, the seminar will discuss the economic policies
in selected Arab countries from social justice perspective and
debate alternatives for more social justice.
