Edited by Olaf Cramme and Patrick Diamond. The aim of this volume is to articulate a modern conception of social justice that remains relevant for an era of rapid globalisation. The authors have developed a robust theoretical account of the relationship between globalisation and social justice complimented by an underpinning policy framework that aims to sustain new forms of equity and solidarity in both developing and industrialised economies. The very notion of what constitutes social justice has always been complex and contested, and in the context of 21st century globalisation there are not only growing concerns that social justice is no longer a credible aspiration given the extent of international economic competition, but also that claims of social justice in the west are now of a second order as against the new concern with global justice, where the focus is on defining the moral responsibilities of the world#s rich towards the world#s poor. What is the relationship between the principles of social justice and global justice? How can we best reconcile the quest for greater social justice #at home# with greater social justice in the world? Are the social justice pressures our societies currently face the result of globalisation or domestically generated? How can we advance social justice in the light of the new social realities? In this volume, leading contributors offer answers to these questions.
