Social justice needed to revive economies faith leaders tell EU

May 12, 2009

Brussels (ENI). Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders at a meeting with top officials of the European Union have said that social justice needs to be at the centre of efforts to revive economies threatened by the global financial crisis. "Without targeting policies at enhancing the talents of the vulnerable, the marginalised will emerge at the end of a recession even more marginalised and society will be all the more fragile," said Roman Catholic Archbishop Diarmuid Martin of Dublin.
