Project description

In diverse societies, multicultural conflicts framed in human rights terms frequently arise. The present research is innovative because it examines these conflicts in terms of procedural fairness (instead of distributive justice) and at the local level (instead of the national level). We investigate social-psychological aspects of procedural fairness in their sociological context in order to build a normative legal model.
