 Integrity, Opportunity, and Vulnerability

Show Summary Details


This chapter advances a conception of justice that serves as the basis of discussions on the rights and obligations of economic citizenship. First, there is commitment to respect and protect citizens’ integrity interests and to maintain a scheme of basic liberties and securities adequate to this task. Second, there is commitment to prevent discrimination, and prevent, correct, or compensate for significant forms of brute luck disadvantage. Third, there is commitment to protect citizens from market vulnerability, and the exploitation and abuse that it spawns.

Keywords: justice; economic citizenship; integrity; discrimination; vulnerability
