Decisions made by general and local Government affect every one of us. Policies enacted on healthcare, housing, taxation, planning and so on all have an impact on our day to day lives. Part of the ‘Good Governance’ pillar in Social Justice Ireland’s proposed Policy Framework for a Just Society, is the right of all people to meaningfully participate in the decisions and to have their say in shaping their communities and the world around them. These rights are a fundamental part of living in a democracy and, as such, should be experienced by all equally.
