Everyday Justice amply demonstrates the value of revitalising the theme of justice in ethnographic work by revealing how both justice and injustice are woven into the fabric of the everyday life in manifold and widely differing ways. The authors account for this complexity across particular social relations, places, and times, disavowing any attempt to essentialize the construal of justice both as an idea and in practice. By means of this approach, concepts and experiences of justice are rendered analytically visible. In the best scholarly tradition, Everyday Justice provides theoretical readings of justice and injustice, justice and law, as well as relational justice, designed to cut through the specificity of myriad social, political and legal conjunctures. One outcome is to orient readers to future research, by highlighting ethnographically specific, yet theoretically distinctive, questions about justice.
This book will be essential reading for anyone interested in justice in theory and practice.
