Identifying the Determinants of Justice

Publication Summary

In this chapter we take all of the associations and variations discussed in Chapters 7–9, and try to create explanatory models for at least some of the criteria of justice identified by young people in this study. Our survey variables can be classified in terms of pupil characteristics (e.g., sex), family interactions (e.g., relationship with parents), predictors (e.g., experience of injustice at school), and potential outcome variables (e.g., sense of justice). This enables ‘prediction’ of the outcome variables using the personal, background and experience variables to assess the influence of family and school on pupils’ developing sense of justice.
