About In the wake of the uprisings, the Arab labor movement and its unions are rethinking their role in the quest for social justice and their relationship to the state, political forces, and civil society. They are rebuilding their strategy to fight social inequalities, corruption, unemployment, and unfavorable neoliberal policies. The uprisings have created an opportunity for citizens and workers to reclaim their social, economic, and political rights and to have a say in their future and the future of their respective country. The mission of the Labor Movements and Unions the Quest for Social Justice in the Arab World program is to facilitate knowledge production that ultimately empowers the Arab labor movement and its unions in this strategic phase. It aims to serve as a focal point and platform where scholars, policymakers, unionists, activists, and the public can exchange knowledge, ideas, strategies and policy recommendations in the quest for social and labor justice.
