About this book

The International Society for Justice Research (ISJR) aims to provide a platform for interdisciplinary justice scholars who are encouraged to present and exchange their ideas. This exchange has yielded a fruitful advance of theoretical and empirically-oriented justice research.

This  volume substantiates this academic legacy and the research prospects of the ISJR in the field of justice theory and research. Included are themes and topics such as the theory of the justice motive, the mapping of the multifaceted forms of justice (distributive, procedural) and justice in context-bound spheres (e.g. non-humans). It presents a comprehensive "state of the art" overview in the field of justice research theory and it puts forth an agenda for future interdisciplinary and international justice research.  It is worth noting that authors in this proposed volume represent ISJR's leading scholarship. Thus, the compilation of their research within a single framework exposes potential readers to high quality academic work that embodies the past, current and future trends of justice research.

Reviews

“I enjoyed reading–and learned a great deal from–nearly every chapter. … I give much credit and appreciation to the editors for assembling a remarkably diverse set of authors, and of course to the authors themselves for their efforts to balance breadth and depth. Most of the readings are perfectly appropriate for assigning in graduate and advanced undergraduate courses, and I can strongly recommend this collection to all scholars and practitioners working in social justice and related areas.” (Barry Markovsky, Social Justice Research, Vol. 30, 2017)
