Berlin ; Heidelberg : Springer, 2012. - 452 S.
The book traces back to the Eichstätt symposium “The potential of justice research for conflict resolution and the understanding of societal problems”, which aimed at bringing together different methodological and disciplinary views of justice research. Nevertheless, the emphasis of the symposium was on empirical perspectives and their application. Distinguished scholars from various disciplines, from Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, and the United States, came together to discuss mainly the following questions: 1. What is the impact of justice judgments on individual perceptions and constructions of conflict situations, and to what extent does justice determine human action as an independent motive? 2. How can the origin and the development of social conflicts be understood from the perspective of experienced justice or injustice? 3. How can social conflicts be alleviated or solved on the basis of perceived justice? This book completes and enriches the Eichstätt talks. Therefore, two features are specific for it: First, it is an interdisciplinary book, integrating the research traditions of many disciplines that are involved with justice issues. Although the psychological contributions build the majority, many other disciplines are represented, like philosophy, economics, educational sciences, sociology, theology, and journalism. Second, all contributions aim at a final practical perspective to make the research fruitful for the concrete resolution of problems within society. This is also the case for the more theoretical chapters of the current book. Altogether, the edition embraces seven parts: 1. Introduction; 2. Justice motive(s); 3. Interpersonal justice; 4. Organizational justice; 5. Ecological justice; 6. Social conflicts on a macro-level; and 7. Protective factors to strengthen and foster sustainable justice.
