The Culture of Justice
Developing societies today is to take on shared values in the context of multiculturalism and of multinational corporations. Although the technology and industry may drive society on a sophisticated way, it also creates gaps between people and countries. The connection factor should be found in a deeper layer, such as natural law or axiological concepts that tend to be universal. In this context, we propose an analysis of how the idea of justice is understood in public policies, government programs, and especially in the way we define justice as a social value. Which is the relation between the idea of justice and public reason?
We welcome interdisciplinary approaches, ranging across social and legal studies, philosophy and cultural studies as well as other disciplines in the humanities.
