Abstract

This paper introduces the idea of justice as a social regulation tool to explain why justice information has such a significant impact in our social lives. Our approach holds that justice shapes people’s social self, motivations and behaviour and therefore has to be considered fundamentally social in nature. Given our unique position as social animals, it is concluded that justice as an important social concern classifies as an important regulation tool in our social lives. (Netherlands Journal of Psychology, 65, 114-117).
