Christians for an Ethical Society forum: The meaning of Justice

THE MEANING OF JUSTICE:  Talk by Acting Justice Richard Christopher
Refshauge

Justice is a very important concept of a principal value that underpins a society that is fair and where the humanity of its members is respected. It is unsurprising, therefore, that it is a concept that has high visibility in the Bible.
There are many categorisations of “Justice”, but a helpful analysis identifies five types: distributive (or economic) justice, procedural justice, retributive justice, restorative justice and environmental justice.

Justice is most commonly connected with the courts, which are often described as the institution which is central to the administration of justice and, accordingly, it is worth looking at them and how they do this, in dispute resolution and especially in sentencing. Richard will explore some of the issues in this context in which he has worked in various capacities for
over the past 45 years.
