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).
