Social Justice in an Open World: The Role of the United NationsIntroductionThe rise in inequality in the distribution of income among people is well-documented and displays the characteristics of a trend, having affected large numbers of coun-tries, from the poorest to the most affluent, during the past two decades.
Up to the 1980s, at least since the Second World War and in some cases since the beginning
of the twentieth century, there had been a general narrowing of differences in the income available to individuals and families. Income-related inequalities, notably in the ownership of capital and other as-sets, in access to a variety of services and benefits, and in the personal security that money can buy, are growing. There is also greater inequality in the distribution of opportunities for remunerated employment, with worsening unemployment and underemployment in various parts of the world affecting a disproportionate number of people at the lower end of the socio-economic scale.
The inequality gap between the richest and poorest countries, measured in terms of national per capita income, is growing as well. Moreover, extreme or absolute poverty, experienced by those whose income is barely suffi-cient for survival, remains widespread.
