Systemic Critique Project
This project aims to deepen and popularize a human rights-based understanding of the dominant socio-economic system that is characterized by capitalism. Guided by grassroots struggles, the project will inform ESCR-Net strategies and shared alternatives to “make human rights and social justice a reality for all”. It will also support a growing number of members and allies to understand the structures and conditions that obstruct human rights as a basis for building solidarity and collective action.

About the Economic Policy Working Group
The Economic Policy Working Group (EPWG) involves members from all regions—social movements, NGOs and academics—committed to making human rights and social justice a reality for all. Initially formed in 2004, the EPWG has collectively addressed issues related to trade, export credit agencies, austerity and development finance, while raising critiques of the wider economic system and elevating alternative models of development.
