FEDERAL POLICY ANALYSIS AND RECOMMENDATIONS 2 Federal Policy Analysis and Recommendations Introduction Human rights, as well as social/economic justice, has been for many years part of the social work profession in America. It ensures human well-being and make sure everyone have their basic needs, and especially the most vulnerable groups, oppressed, and the poor. The NASW code of ethics describes social justice as an incentive to effect change as well as promote equity, and every person should be committed to human rights. Everyone in the society is entitled to fundamental human rights, which includes living free, safety, privacy, decent living standards, healthcare as well as education (NASW code of ethics, 2019). The NASW has come to an understanding of the world-wide interrelations of oppression and justice. The human rights concept is the understanding that all people should be entitled to given equal rights as members of society. Implementation of such human rights depends on various legal and policy mechanism which promotes equity. For effective implementation off this human rights, social justice, as well as societal structure, are essential to enhance equality depending on the laid down laws and policies. Such concepts of human rights, as well as social justice, is put in place to show the need for fairness, equality, and respect. An equal distribution of resources and opportunities is not equality, since there are different requirements for various social context, and others need more significant intervention to achieve justice. A structure of the above combination can create the foundation for protection as well as fostering equity in the society. Furthermore, a significant aspect of equality is access to information.

Most of the time, they do not get the chance to participate in the areas of social economic as well as social systems that they should be part of. Such deprivation to social justice is in terms of social as well as physical barriers that are as a result of ignorance, fear, and indifference. In many places all over the world, there is a persistent uncalled for stereotype as well as prejudice towards people living with a disability that results in social exclusion. Most disabled people cannot access public places due to physical inaccessibility. Some areas have doorways that are very narrow for a wheelchair to pass through, some buildings and public transport have steps that are can’t be mounted, others have telephone as well as light switches that are far from reach and others have sanitary facilities that cannot be accessed by people with disabilities (United Nations. Dept. of Public Information, 1994).
