While laws all over the world guarantee equality between groups of people, there is structural inequality that excludes vulnerable groups in existing power structures. This cannot be afforded at a moral, pragmatic, or legal level. Those people who are in positions of authority in the hierarchy have established norms that protect the interests of the powerful; we need a just order that restructures this inequality. How do we measure social exclusion, and how do we shape that into a meaningful discourse about how to guarantee rights for all? This chapter is part of Module 2: How Do International Legal Frameworks and Institutions Interact with the Development Agenda?
