Institutional Issues Involving Ethics And Justice is a component of Encyclopedia of Institutional and Infrastructural Resources in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias.

The Theme considers issues dealing with fundamental matters of ethics and justice. The chapters collected together in this theme are designed to contribute positively to the development of human institutions that will sustain a universally good quality of human life organized around fundamentals of ethics and justice. These articles aim to assist us in thinking about the ethical dimensions of the social worlds we inhabit, their global contexts, and their impact on the natural world. They are intended to provide a critical perspective on the current situation; to question beliefs and attitudes that are taken for granted, and to provide direction in developing and evolving the complex and interconnected array of attitudes, policies, laws, principles, practices, and the like, thatare necessary for creating and sustaining a decent quality of life for all.

These two volumes are aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College students Educators, Professional practitioners, Research personnel and Policy analysts, managers, and decision makers and NGOs.
