Chapter 3 – Iceland (Case Study) Iceland became one of the symbols of the global financial crisis. Before the global financial crisis, Iceland was one of the most stable countries with high standard of living, low unemployment and very low rate of government debt. Iceland became a good example of success stories of globalization and financial deregulation. Iceland was a country that was listed as a “developing country” up until 1973 by the United Nations became one of the wealthiest countries in Europe in a scope of a decade.

We should all have social equality. The social justice issue that I would like to discuss is civil rights (racism & sexism). Today everyone knows that if you are white, especially a white male, you already have an upper hand in life. White people in America are privileged and it 's not hard to tell. In my opinion, treating someone poorly for their race doesn’t make any sense.
Evaluate the idea that language is determined by Social Class The term ‘social class’ describes historical divisions in society based on a person’s economic and social status. Nowadays, these divisions have become blurred, due to the introduction of the technical middle class and other sub-divisions within the class system. Despite some elements of speech still being affected by a person’s social class, it can also be affected by contextual factors, such as location, or who else is participating in a conversation. Firstly, the characters Jess, Toff and Mark use many more standard forms than the characters J and C, from The Only Way is Essex. For example, when Toff says the adjective “divine”.
These forms of discrimination are still common within school systems, and continue to affect the lives of many students(Expereiences of racism). We will attempt to critically examine the forms of racism and classism experienced in the classrooms today, and seek out a solution to lessening these forms of injustices in school communities.

(1998). The Role of Interlanguage in Foreign Language Teaching. Iral, 36(1), 1-10. The study done by Nickel discusses the nature of interlanguage and the effects this phenomenon has on second language learning and teaching.

McInerney stated that whole of school reform, reviews of curriculum and pedagogy, and responses to government policies were the most prevalent social justice strategies in the education-based social justice literature. Bates focused on the primary and secondary systems and found there an emphasis on redistributive and on recognitive approaches to social justice in educational administration. There are diverse interpretations of the term social justice in the context of education. Frequently, social inclusion is also discussed in the education context when we discuss social justice. O‘Connor and Moodie, examined the concept of social inclusion‘ and its importance in relation to the higher education sector where social inclusion implies the inclusion of an individual, group or community in society in general and higher education in particular.
This is when the English language was introduced to Ireland and it’s stayed ever since as at the moment English is the language that is commonly spoken in Ireland. After the famine Irish was only spoken by 15% of the Irish population. Although the importance of the Irish language is still significantly evident today because in article 8 of the constitution of Ireland it states that Irish is the national and first official language of the republic of Ireland.

Almost all nations in the world have their own language. Due to the disadvantages of social globalization, Ireland is one of the few nations that has a language that very few of its people can actually speak.

According to the 2011 census, 41% of the population claimed they could speak Gaelic. This may look notable on paper, but it says nothing about the amount of Irish people that actually use it.
The discussion on the social justice and injustice is one of the most important issues in cotemporary global scenario. New Oxford American Dictionary defines Social Justice as “justice in terms of the distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges within a society”2 (Wikipedia). Contrary to it where inequalities persist in the society it falls within the sweep of injustice. Merriam Webster Dictionary defines injustice as “unfair treatment: a situation in which the rights of a person or group of people are ignored”3 (Meriam- Webster).

Women have been getting more education and because of Iceland’s rich history and strong women, we have become the country with the best gender equality. Although there is a lot of place for improvements, Iceland is considered to be one of the best place for working women in the world because of they´re strong passion to end gender equality. There is surely less uncertainty about gender equality in Iceland because of how much women’s rights have changed throughout the years.
