Abstract

The day I am writing this foreword happens to be World Day of Social Justice,1 reminding us all that we are living in an unjust world, often without really being fully aware of it, and that there is a dire need for us to work towards eradicating poverty and unemployment, indecent work and exploitation, gender inequality and discrimination, and inequitable or minimal distribution of basic social services to those who need them most. This is the global and local context, though the extent of it may differ from one country to another and from one context to another. In the midst of prosperity, wealth and abundant resources, why have we created such a world? It is important to pause and ponder this question, and further ask: what was the world like in the past? What was our previous global context? What are the global and local contexts today? How and why has our current situation evolved in such contexts? What kind of future contexts are we creating?Where do we want to go? What kind of global contexts do we want to create?
