What does justice mean?

The public lecture series aims to encourage discussion on the state of justice in people's everyday thinking and in political decision making.

In autumn 2015, the top academics in Finland will illuminate their own discipline's concepts of justice.

– Everyone supports justice, but it means a different thing for everyone. Someone wants it to serve the economic growth, while another talks about helping the poor and the marginalised, describes professor of the School of Business Matti Häyry.

The lecture series is part of the Aalto University School of Business' project Justice and Its Alternatives in a Globalising World.

– In our project, we aim to create understanding for experts and decision-makers of how people see justice in very different ways, especially when discussing worldwide issues in the context of globalisation. This understanding then hopefully leads to better research on the subject and to better political decision making, describes the leader of the project, professor Häyry.
