This introduction to the SJR current special issue on Justice and Education, attempts to further depict the realm of education as a field of justice research. Leaning on Walzer’s (1983) seminal book Spheres of Justice, we first provide a general mapping of education as a “sphere of justice” and then describe and exemplify some of the salient justice paradigms that have guided educational research. Finally, we shortly describe the contributions to the special issue and situate them within the existing research, concluding with some recommendations for future justice research in the realm of education.
