Substantive democratic governance practices are rooted in fair and equitable economic arrangements. Social justice, more broadly, is intrinsic to the regional agenda the FES advances through its respective offices and individual projects. In close cooperation with  sister offices, Dialogue SOE organizes platforms and provides comparative analysis on regional economic and social policies with a view to assessing their societal impact and formulating recommendations towards more fair, sustainable, and participatory policy making. Our recently published regional youth studies demonstrate the kinds of intersections of economic, social, and political justice which inform our advocacy efforts.
