Abstract
In this chapter, responses to three interrelated questions are sketched: Why should music educators be interested in justice? What is meant by the term 'social justice' and what are the sorts of social justice? How should music educators act on behalf of justice? The case is made for a multifaceted view of justice broadly construed. Aspects of distributive justice, communitarian justice, commutative justice, contributive justice, procedural justice, retributive justice, restorative justice, poetic justice, instrumental justice, legal justice, divine justice, and justice viewed through natural law are applied to notions of social justice from the perspective of education and music education. Several practical steps in working against injustice and toward justice in and on behalf of music education are offered.
