This special issue fans the flames of interest in social psychological justice theory and research, and showcases the new social psychological developments relating to justice and fairness. It addresses identity; "negative justice"--what happens after wrongs have occurred; contingent models that specify the boundary conditions when different considerations are likely to be especially important in people's conceptions of justice; and emotion.
