About this book

Central to the book are questions concerning the existence and the characteristics of justice motives, and concerning the influence that justice motives and justice judgements have on the emergence, but also the solution of social conflicts. Five main themes will be addressed: (1) “Introduction and justice motive”, (2) “organizational justice”, (3) “ecological justice”, (4) “social conflicts”, and (5) “solution of conflicts”. The authors of the editions are scholars of psychology, as well as distinguished experts from various other disciplines, including sociologists, economists, legal scholar, educationalists, and ethicists. The common ground of all contributors is their independent conduction of empirical research on justice issues. Apart from the German contributors, authors represent scholars from the US, India, Korea, New Zealand, and various European countries (Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, UK, Sweden).

Reviews

From the reviews:

“‘Justice and Conflicts’ covers an ambitious and wide-ranging selection of topics. … ‘Justice and Conflicts’ is a broad introduction to the area of justice conflicts. It will surely be of interest to those researchers in the area of justice and conflicts, and individual chapters might be used for courses on specific justice themes, like environmental or penal justice.” (Debra Hevenstone, Social Justice Research, Vol. 26, 2013)
