Social Justice Research – Call for Papers on Justice and Health
Submission deadline for papers (based on accepted abstracts): June 30, 2018
The special issue is expected to appear in 2019
Overview / Información general
Social Justice Research plans a special issue in “Justice and Health”, to appear in 2019. This issue will be multidisciplinarily oriented, and will be open to contributions from psychology, sociology, economics, philosophy, epidemiology, public health, political science, public administration etc., as long as the research makes a contribution to the theoretical and/or empirical state of the art.
Guest editors are Yukiko Asada and Erik Schokkaert.
The editors will consider contributions related to the following contexts:
a) Priority setting: how to decide equitably about which treatments should be included in the insurance package – or provided by the public system?
b) Inequality and inequity in health outcomes
c) Inequity in access to the health care system (e.g., who pays? Is there equality of access based on need?)
These topics can be approached in different ways:
ü Conceptual questions about how to define “justice” in the contexts above.
ü Empirical work on how people think about justice.
ü Empirical work on actual systems, i.e., on how equitable is the existing situation.
It is important that authors make sure to clarify and define whatever ‘fairness concept’ they use, whether or not they focus on equity, equality or the umbrella notion of justice.
