Social Justice in Global Development
SocDevJustice

About us

SocDevJustice was founded in 2010, following discussions among international nongovernmental organizations that had gathered at the UN Millennium Development Summit of the United Nations in New York. The aim was to create a platform that supports initiatives to promote social justice in global development by exchanging ideas and information on specific questions for advocacy and lobby work, particular at the UN.

SocDevJustice works with an international Advisory Board, whose members bring their experience and knowledge and advise the association on development related research papers, statements and publications.  See members of the Advisory Board here »»»

The legal basis is in Leipzig in Germany with an office in Malente, where a Board of Directors assists the Executive Director Eva Hanfstaengl.

The work of our organization is supported by a Group of Friends, who assist with their expertise and also financial contribution. This group is open to new members. See members of the Group of Friends here »»»

Our organization depends on the voluntary contributions and cooperation of dedicated people, committed to our goals. We would be pleased if you would like to contribute your experience, your knowledge and skills with us.

We are a non-profit organization and would also be grateful for financial support. For more details see »»»
