Social justice is a political and philosophical theory which asserts that there are dimensions to the concept of justice beyond those embodied in the principles of civil or criminal law, economic supply and demand, or traditional moral frameworks. In their article titled What is social justice? Implications for psychology, Thrift and Sugarman attempt to define the concept of social justice and critically explore the efforts of psychologists in its pursuit, particularly given the widespread interest and commitment among psychologists to promote it. Eventually, the authors presented Fraser’s framework for social justice as the best account of theoretical guide for psychologists.
