Ethics and Social Justice


Ethics and Social Justice


Every country is run and governed by a legitimately elected government that oversaw the all national and international operations. One of the roles of the government is to protect its citizens against any form of human rights violation that may emanate internally or externally. As such, governments have power and authority to make decisions that have positive impacts on the livelihoods of the citizens and foreigners living in the country. However, a government that is unable to protect its citizens from internal and external aggressors is regarded as a failed state and citizens together with the international community do not have trust in such a government. Africa is a highly blessed continent with a wide range of natural resources and good climate but the form of governance adopted by national and federal governments contribute to challenges that necessitate international community participating in providing aids to some countries in the continent. Government institutions violate human rights in one way or the other but the magnitude matters.
