SIMN Gets Invited to Join the Global Coalition for Social Justice, Established by the Governing Body of the International Labour Organization (ILO)

New York, December 11, 2023.- The Scalabrini International Migration Network (SIMN) proudly announces its invitation to join the Global Coalition for Social Justice, an initiative established by the governing body of the International Labour Organization (ILO).

The Global Coalition for Social Justice is a ground-breaking initiative aimed at intensifying collective efforts to urgently address social justice deficits and to accelerate the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Sustainable Development Goals, and the Decent Work Agenda. It creates a collaborative space for action, advocacy, and dialogue in which partners shape individual and collective opportunities for concrete actions and tangible outcomes. The ultimate goal will be to achieve a greater balance among the economic, social, and environmental dimensions of sustainable development, to significantly reduce inequalities and poverty, and to meet essential needs and opportunities worldwide.

Joining the Coalition offers SIMN an opportunity to increase the scale and impact of its actions by working jointly with others in a more coherent and coordinated manner, identifying new opportunities and partnerships with other participants, and increasing the visibility of its actions and initiatives to advance social justice by benefiting from a broader network of actors to showcase and highlight progress and impact. The Coalition will also allow SIMN to leverage the power of social dialogue and tripartism as an effective means to advance social justice in a sustainable manner.

As an influential international network with a longstanding commitment to serving migrants, refugees, and displaced communities, SIMN stands poised to collaborate closely within the Coalition, leveraging its expertise, diverse initiatives, and deep-rooted networks to further the cause of social justice on a global scale.
