On 29 July, ESCWA and the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation (UNOSSC) organized a dialogue aimed at facilitating knowledge exchange on social justice and supporting Arab countries to capitalize on experiences from conflict and fragile situations.

The Round Table Discussion aimed to engage experts and development practitioners to discuss key elements that may promote or hinder social justice in contexts of conflict and fragility. Participants will explore potential solutions grounded in conceptual frameworks, evidence, and concrete country experiences. The Round Table Discussion provided a substantive foundation for the larger project which aims to develop and implement guidelines to address social justice challenges under conflict and fragility.
