Social Justice in Japan

Concepts, Theories and Paradigms

Edited by: Ken-ichi Ohbuchi

Theoretical and practical issues of social justice and fairness - in both the Japanese and international context - form the central theme of this collection of studies by twelve Japanese researchers. The book incorporates mainly social psychological approaches to the analysis of diverse situations and concepts, including fairness bonds, strata-consciousness in Japan, distributive and procedural fairness, environmental justice, discrimination and assimilation, dehumanizing labeling, inter-group conflict, organizational stress-management, and two different examples of German social justice - anti-nuclear protests and citizens' participation in urban planning.
