Unsurprisingly, over forty years later, social and global realities present theories of justice with new challenges. This volume examines what these new challenges are, and whether contemporary theories are in a position to respond to them. The collection brings together essays that push the boundaries of justice theorizing in new directions, and that begin to construct a new paradigm. The collection contributes to the creation of a platform from which new ideas and new conversations, about the challenges and opportunities for justice in our world, can be further explored and developed.
