Towards an Agenda for Social Justice Philanthropy in Africa in a Time of Global Restructuring

“Social justice” and “structural change” which are central concerns for social justice philanthropy are contested concepts with multiple definitions and meanings1. The result is that the range of issues which are be the object of social justice philanthropy is broad and the methods for attaining social justice through structural change are varied. The multiplicity of issues are linked to the different understandings of what constitutes structural change and therefore the issues that need to be addressed to bring this about and the variety of ways in which the issues could be tackled. The focus of my discussion about the challenges of social justice philanthropy in Africa is located around a notion of social justice and structural change in respect of the political economy of Africa in the context corporate led globalization and the nature of the continent’s subordinate location in the global order.
