Corrective Justice

Part of the Law and Philosophy Library book series (LAPS, volume 72)


Historical entitlement arguments appear in a variety of forms. A second version of such arguments invokes the concept of corrective justice: the claim to a particular piece of land is based on prior possession and subsequent wrongful dispossession. Typically, group representatives will argue that they were the legitimate owners of the land in question which was unjustly acquired from them, and are therefore entitled to reclaim it from its present possessors.
