Social justice and public policy: seeking fairness in diverse societies
Social justice is a contested term, incorporated into the language of widely differing political positions. To date, political philosophers have made relatively few serious attempts to explain how a theory of social justice translates into public policy.This important book, drawing on international experience, addresses what the meaning of social justice is, and how it translates into the everyday concerns of public and social policy, in the context of both multiculturalism and globalisation.
