Show Summary Details


In this chapter, three applications of justice as minimizing domination are suggested. In the first, it is argued that minimizing domination entails the public provision of an unconditional basic income. In the second, a concern for domination is shown to require limited policies of multicultural accommodation. In the third, it is shown that constitutional democracies are the political systems most likely to minimize overall domination. The role of various forms of resistance in realizing justice as minimizing domination (JMD) is briefly discussed.

Keywords: distributive justice; unconditional basic income; multiculturalism; multicultural accommodation; democracy; resistance
