Social justice in education is a relatively new field of educational research and historically has concentrated on economic distribution and the representation of minority groups. The previous conceptualization needs to change to meet the current needs of students in a globalizing world. Social justice must include ‘the political’ (participation, student voice, and student empowerment). How social justice principles can be applied to educational contexts in Eastern and Western traditions will be examined and the links between social justice theory and practice will be explored.
