Financial Justice Ireland (formerly Debt and Development Coalition Ireland) is a global financial justice organisation.We want a fair and just society for everyone. We want a financial system that serves the needs of all people, rather than just some people, and which does not take the planet for granted.We critically engage people to understand the structural causes of global inequality and power relations. We aim to empower people in Ireland to take informed action for greater economic justice globally. Tackling inequality and achieving a fairer society requires critiquing power structures in our society and globally – highlighting the causes of inequality, rather than the symptoms. 

Our mission is to transfer and to develop new models and projects of social, cultural, educational and economic development.
